The Nike Sock Dart needs little introduction at this point. The laceless lightweight model has become one of their most popular summer running shoes and Nike has been steadily releasing colorways of it. The latest is a triple black treatment that’s available now at Nike SNKRS for $130.
In more sneaker news, Nike put out a new take on the Mercurial model, this time using white flyknit and combining it with the famous Spiridon sole. OG Spiridon themselves are being brought back soon as a retro but these have a decidedly sci-fi feel with the all white color-way. Might be a little difficult to keep these clean for long given the colorway, but you can scoop em now for $200 at Nike.

The release of the ACRONYM x Nike Lunar Forces last year showed that designer Errolson Hugh was not afraid to make drastic design changes to a flagship Nike model. Photos have now surfaced online of what appears to be the next shoe collaboration between the techwear innovator and Nike.
Two sample color ways have emerged both featuring a mid height design with a zippered inner bootie and some new protective layering around the toe. One appears to be navy with cream accents and the other is a wild pink and volt combo. Time will tell if other variations might also be released.
Expect a release later this summer through Nike Lab outlets.
Hender Scheme has made a name for itself by putting out extremely high quality handmade sneakers. While most of the shapes are borrowed from classic 90’s sneakers, there is no substitute for the quality of natural leather and hand-stitching found on their models. The Spring/Summer ‘Post Modern’ includes their take on the IV, an Air Force and a tan natural leather version of the Nike Presto. With no external branding and attention to detail down to the leather laces, these will set you back a good stack but they are sure to last for years. Expect to find them online at their usual outlets – Need Supply, END and Mr.Porter.
