Following their recent outerwear collaboration towards the tail end of last year, Italian outerwear heavyweights Stone Island and Nike have returned with an innovative take on Nike's popular Sock Dart silhouette.
With aesthetic and functionality in mind, Stone Island researched, developed and tested new technologies to form a meeting point between its use of pioneering fabrication techniques and Nike’s design.
The result features a new, mid-cut silhouette, in a glossy zonal silicone print, complete with poly spandex lining, glossy adjustable strap and Duralon foam outsole, with sipe pattern for water dispersion and improved traction.
If you’re in London this week don’t forget to check out the Massimo Osti Archive, which features some of Stone Islands most iconic pieces.
