Originally developed during the early '90s by Nike's HTM dream team, the Sock Dart has seen numerous releases over the past year. Like the Roshe, Huarache and Flyknit racer silhouettes, it quickly became a mundane sneaker in my eyes as Nike saturated the market by adopting an aggressive approach to circulating iteration after subtle iteration of the trainer. This collab with Stone Island however is the most interesting version to date, put together from grain leather and bonded mesh with a sock liner; while key design elements remain relatively the same. Rumoured for an initial launch next week in 3 colourways, I'm curious to see how they look and feel in person. Pay close attention to NikeLab's site for pending details.
