Sneakers and socks have been inseparable for years and the past few months the two have gotten closer than ever. This can be evidenced in models like Nike’s new Zoom Mercurial Flyknit and it’s snug ankle covering upper.

The Flyknit sneaker features a design that is for all intents and purposes simply a sock with a running sole attached. While that doesn’t sound supportive at all between the snug fit, cupped heel support and build up sole it certainly looks otherwise. For this iteration of the shoe we are given a white build with silver accents and the texture that he flyknit upper provides keeps this one far from being boring.

You can pick up the Nike Zoom Mercurial Flyknit starting on June 23 from select Nike retailers.
