History of NikeLab Sock Dart Mid x Stone Island
The idea of creating the Nike Sock Dart was initiated in 2002 and was designed by Tobie Hatfield. The shoe was released in 2004 in Japan. The computerized knit upper of the shoe called the Nike Flyknit is said to be the first step in the innovation and was of importance to the shoe’s success.
In 2015, the Sock Dart made a comeback, thanks to Hiroshi Fujiwara. Nike made a limited edition release for the Sock Dart’s reboot that same year. It was for the purpose of making the sneaker popular. Stone Island then announced its collaboration with NikeLab for an outwear gear, the Nike Windrunner. In 2016, the NikeLab x Stone Island Windrunner from Stone Island and Nikelab collaboration was released.
In 2017, Stone Island and NikeLab once again released another product from their successful ongoing collaboration. It can be seen in the form of the newly released mid-top sneaker, the NikeLab Sock Dart Mid x Stone Island. The shoe profile features a laceless construction and was provided with a pull tab that can be seen being fixed to the inner cleatie of the shoe. The shoe was released in three available colorways: black, obsidian blue, and sequoia green.
