Nike Air Sock Racer Top

Originally launched in 1986, the Air Sock Racer arrived on the market with a look that definitely didn't blend in with conventional running shoe norms. Later this month, the shoe gets reimagined with a modern update that adds Flyknit to the upper while staying true to the original design with the dual buckle straps. It also gets a Nike Ultra Sole with a sipe pattern much like the Free sole and top-loaded air in the heel for cushioning. 

The Air Sock Racer Ultra will be available on April 27th at select Nike+ SNKRS, Nike's online store, and select retailers
