Alongside the OG-inspired Free Sock Racer in yellow and black, this deep Laser Purple version is also set to drop like Grimace. While the new school rendition trades in the original form-fitting mesh upper for a silky neoprene smock, the all-terrain high mileage runner retains its lightweight credentials. As Nike’s advertising copy stated, “So if you’re out to put everything behind you, buckle yourself into the Sock Racer. It could be the answer to your prayers.” Pick up a copy of Sneaker Freaker issue 26 for more photos of this purple packet.
