The Nike Sock Racer needs to be seen to be believed...or worn. Such were the adages and taglines of Nike's marketing campaigns that ushered in the Nike Air Sock Racer when it debuted in 1986. An oddity in shape with a clear streak of rebellion, the Bruce Kilgore designed Sock Racer was a radical departure from traditional performance footwear. Reducing weight and material construction, promoted a 'less is more' approach, unintentionally kick started a genealogy of innovation at the Swoosh.

The Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit pays homage to itself by draping its uppers in Flyknit – a technology that the original Sock Racer’s stretchy upper was a precursor of. The reliable microfibre straps and buckles remain from the original. Now with a re-tooled sole unit, the already featherweight shoe becomes ultra lightweight, with endless cushioning from ZOOM Air. Siping along the outsole references Nike Free, another major advancement that evolved from the Sock Racer. In keeping with the original’s reputation for being 'Still Crazy After All These Years,' the Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit reprises its forefather’s bumblebee colourway and a flecked Grey verion. Warning signs not included.
