Nike Officially Unveils the Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit

Originally released in 1986 as a marathon shoe, Nike is officially set to bring back the Air Sock Racer, but this time with a bit of an upgrade. Today, we introduce the Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit that will be releasing on April 27th.

Nike’s newest Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit brings the innovations of the original shoe into the present. The upper uses Nike Flyknit for the first time, offering increased breathability, improved fit and an uncanny capacity to take different coloring. The shoe maintains the original buckle closures with slightly thicker straps — one that keeps the wearer from shifting too far forward, and the other for medial and lateral support — and the collar’s lined pattern draws from the Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit. The lighter Nike Ultra outsole includes dual-density foam tooling, a sipe pattern referencing the construction of Nike Free and encapsulated, top-loaded air in the heel.

Look for the Nike Air Sock Racer Ultra Flyknit to release in its OG-inpsired Yellow/Black colorway as well as a Grey/Black version on April 27th at select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $130 USD.
