 * Innovative materials deflect rain and hold in heat
* Stretchy, snug, sock-like fit
* Flexible rubber sole lets your feet move naturally

If this isn’t the shoe of the future, then at least it looks like it. From Nike’s space-age looking Sock Dart collection comes the Sock Dart Premium, a souped-up version of their innovative, best-selling slip on shoes.

Created more for athleisure than athletic pursuits, the Nike Sock Dart pushes footwear deep into the 21st century with use of new materials and technology. If there was one word to describe this line, we’d say, “ease.” The entire collection consists of laceless styles, shoes meant to be slipped on and adjusted for fit and security with a single mid-foot strap.

Most models have been constructed from breathable, stretchy mesh, but this premium version seen here is made from a synthetic leather engineered for flexibility and comfort. And comfort is paramount: “Sock Dart” is all about a fit as snug, flexible and light as yes, a sock. A foam midsole provides pillowy, light-as-air cushioning. Find the equally-light rubber outsole hyperflexible, allowing your feet to move naturally and unconstrained.

The materials used in the Premium’s upper, wrap around your foot for an almost custom fit, like all others in the lineup, but they’ve also been treated to repel rain and retain heat, making this a surprise alternative to clompy, non-breathable rubber rain shoes and cold weather boots, while maintaining a sleek, streamlined look.
