Nike Sock Dart new colours

The NIKE SOCK DART continues its onslaught, with a new selection of colours in both men’s and women’s sizing hitting the streets shortly.

The Nike Sock Dart debuted way back in 2004, bringing avant-garde styling to an audience who had been weaned on more traditional running silhouettes. The design reduced components to a minimum, with a clean upper section and materials that provided a customised fit. Whilst some people considered it to be too revolutionary, it became a shoe of desire for many with collectors actively hunting out deadstock pairs. Instead of being a random experiment from Nike, the Sock Dart contained elements of things we’d seen previously: a stretch mesh upper on the Bermuda from ’79 or the snug-fitting neoprene of the Air Flow, for example. The wizard of all things culturally interesting, Gary Warnett, has taken a closer look at the Sock Dart’s journey from its forerunners and predecessors through to the current iterations which you can pick up now. Check out his concise history of the Sock Dart over here on the END. blog.

The five new colourways (two in men’s sizing and three in women’s) that are about to be unleashed show the true versatility of the design. In darker shades, the Dart becomes a low-key stealthy choice, perfect for everyday wear. In lighter colours, it becomes more attention grabbing, with more emphasis placed on the forefoot strap. We like the variety on offer: there’s something for everyone here and if not, then you’ve still got time to crack open the NIKEiD palette as well. As a companion to the also-relaunched Presto, the Sock Dart has truly come of age in 2016.
