The History of Nike Sock Dart Releases
The first thoughts about the Nike Sock Dart silhouette were made as far back as in 2002. The 3 iconic top designers Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker made the first drawings of what was to be the Nike Sock Dart silhouet. Dispite the obvious HTM collaboration there is no visible HTM branding on the shoes.
In July 2004 the first 6 colorways of the Nike Sock Dart were released in super limited quantities and only a handfull of stores worldwide got the shoes. Some people were crazy about the futuristic look and others weren’t ready for it yet.
10 years later in 2014 the history of the silhouette continues with the Fragment x Nike Sock Dart release. During 2014 and 2015 3 colorways were released in the strong collab between Fragment Design and NikeLab. That released really put the silhouet back on the map and all shoes sold out immediatly.
Since then a number of colorways have been introduced. For example the ‘Independence Day’ collection, the ‘Tech Fleece’ collection as well as the opportunity to design your own unique colorway with Nike iD.
