The last couple of Nike Sock Dart launches were promising for the future of the shoe, arriving at a general release level that made them relatively easy to purchase.

Should that pattern hold in 2016, other upcoming releases like the ones seen here will provide a much-needed alternative to anyone that doesn't feel like paying secondary market prices for the pairs that hit last year.

On display in this preview is a trio of speckle-sole styles and another one wearing Nike's Tech Fleece fabric.

There's no firm sneaker release date info yet on this group of Nike Sock Darts.
