The NIKELAB AQUA SOCK 360 is a rich retooling slant of Nike’s much-loved water shoe…

Designed by Geoff Hollister in the late ‘80s, the original Aqua Sock was about as simple as it gets – pairing a simple mesh slip-on upper with a rubber sole to offer a waterproof shoe that was just as relevant on the streets as the beach.

After bringing back the classic ACG silhouette last month, Nike’s amphibious Aqua Sock 360 gets a premium update from NikeLab, which sees the coveted shoe drop in three eye-catching colourways later this week. Retaining the Aqua Sock’s archetypal slip-on upper with a souped up sole unit split into three sections, the NikeLab iteration takes shape with a two-layer mesh sock-fit upper, with a Swoosh-branded heel counter to the back. The upmarket edition differentiates from last month’s predecessor with a corresponding midfoot strap constructed from perforated plastic.

Available in cream and beige, vivid orange and black, or black and white with a tiffany blue detailing – all three palettes present a fresh and vibrant take on a much-loved collectors shoe. Don’t expect these to hang around on the shelves for too long…
