The Nike Air Sock Racer came to this world in 1986 and instantly turned some heads. It was something sneakerheads and consumers weren’t used to see. A sneaker with a sock-like fit that has just two straps for small adjustments without any lacing system but buckles? That was something new. Designed by Bruce Kilgore, the same guy that gifted us the Air Force 1, the Nike Air Sock Racer was built for long marathons giving runners the possibility to wear the shoe without socks. Nowadays Nike designs the retro model with a breathable Flyknit upper paired with an ultralight midsole with an Air unit that matches perfectly together. Now the OG colorway in Black and Yellow is back, get your hands on some running history with this pair.
