In today's world of footwear, sock sneakers seem to reign supreme. Every major brand from Nike to Adidas has introduced a sock-like upper into their arsenal. Even high fashion brands like Balenciaga have created their own iterations that literally look like a tube sock glued on top of a rubber midsole. This trend does not look like it is slowing down any time soon, as another new Nike sock sneaker has been spotted.
Previewed by Instagram user fyk7, this new pair features grey and black knit upper, high white sock collar, a white rubber toe cap and heel cup, and sits on a Nike Free sole. Branding includes a white Nike Swoosh by the lateral heel area, and pull tabs on the "tongue" and heel portion of the collar labeled "Gyakusou," which indicates this pair will be debuting as a part of a future running collection with Jun Takahashi's Undercover Gyakusou.
An official name for this silhouette and release information have yet to be announced.
