Update: The Nike Sock Dart SE “Aluminum” is now available at nike.com.
Fresh off the release of the Stone Island Nike Sock Dart collaboration, Nike Sportswear continues to revamp the ahead-of-its-time running retro with new features. This pair sticks to the computerized woven upper championed by Tobie Hatfield, as the precursor to Flyknit gets a simplified dark grey colorway to match the smoky black accents on the strap overlay throughout. The real call to action on this upcoming Nike Sock Dart SE is the metallic silver heel caps, though as it’s the first time we’ve seen NSW take advantage of the unique construction for a head-turning new look.
The Nike Sock Dart burst onto the scene in 2004 in limited quantities in Japan and garnered a cult following for its unparalleled design. Now, in a sneaker climate that features more minimalist silhouettes driven by woven tech, the Sock Dart has finally hit its stride and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. What do you think of this new take?
Check out more detailed shots of the Nike Sock Dart SE’s Metallic Silver transformation below and be on the lookout for this pair to drop in February. For more of the latest updates, head over to our Release Dates page.
