Nike may actually be a bit late to the knit sock-shoe trend.
What appears to be an Undercover x Nike Gyakusou runner has surfaced on Instagram, straight from Hong Kong.
It rides atop a Nike Free outsole, and judging by the heel counters, this silhouette is made for running. There is a plastic toewrap to reinforce the knit, and the sock-height follows a trend set by Balenciaga’s Speed Trainer and Reebok’s Sock Runner, among others (nearly every brand is doing a high knit sock-shoe).
There is no official word on release information or pricing but we’ll keep you updated.
