On the heels of last month's preview, Nike has officially taken the wraps off the Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit. The revamped model brings the innovations of the original 1986 runner into present day, now featuring Nike Flyknit construction for the first time. The build offers increased breathability and improved fit, complemented with the original buckle closures, executed with slightly thicker straps: one keeps the foot from shifting too far forward, and the other delivers medial and lateral support. Rounding out the details is the lightweight Nike Ultra outsole, featuring dual-density foam tooling and a sipe pattern inspired by the Nike Free sole, with an encapsulated, top-loaded air unit in the heel. Look for the Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit to launch April 27 on Nike+ SNKRS, and select retailers.

Release Date: 4/27/17 (Thursday)
