Nike brought back the Sock Racer a few months ago in the OG black/yellow colourway and they will be wasting no time in giving the retro silhouette a modern makeover.
The Nike Air Sock Racer was designed as a marathon sneaker back in 1986. More than 30 years later Nike has decided to bring it back with a couple of major upgrades.
The Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit comes with a Flyknit upper that instantly makes it more breathable while also providing a better overall fit. Keeping some of the shoes OG aesthetics, Nike decides to preserve the model’s original buckle closure with a slight change in width (they’re now thicker) this time around. The final upgrade is the sole which comes with a Nike Free pattern on the sides, top-loaded air in the heel and of course and Ultra (lighter/cored out) construction. The debuting colourways has the Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit come in Yellow and Black and Grey and Black.
The Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit will drop on the 27th of April 2017 for the retail price of R1899.00
