NikeLab Sock Dart Mid x Stone Island
The original Nike Sock Dart debuted back in 2004, presenting avant-garde styling to an audience who had been weaned on more traditional running shapes. The unique design reduced components to a minimum, resulting in a clean upper section and functional materials that offered a customised fit. Instead of being a random experiment from the heads at 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. This new collaboration release comes via the masterminds at Stone Island, long regarded as leaders in their use of technical fabrics and textiles, and presents the Sock Dart in a new mid-cut height. Three colourways have been unveiled so far – Navy, Sequoia and Black – each featuring a new textured treatment on the top of the forefoot.
