Part of the Genealogy of Free Black Pack that showcases precursor models to the advent of Nike Free technology, the Nike Sock Racer features a groundbreaking silhouette, one that became a favorite among marathon runners and triathletes following its original release in 1986. Like many innovations the shoe was born by accident, when Nike designers stumbled upon an especially heavyweight and durable nylon while trying to develop running tights. They used the material for the Nike Sock Racer instead, producing a cult favorite that would go on to transcend sport and even gender. The kicks are set to drop May 15th at sivasdescalzo.
