While the weather continues to conspire against the best efforts of the calendar, Spring is officially here.
We should know - in addition to being an hour late for work, Nike has started ramping up its warm weather efforts with a new summer shoe, the Free Socfly.
A minimalist slip-on, the Free Socfly provides a snug, breathable fit thanks to a sock-like mesh upper and a Velcro cross-foot strap.
Sitting astride Nike's light weight, flexible Free 3.0 sole unit, the Free Socfly is aimed squarely at city commuters and sweaty concrete escapades. Two colour models have been revealed so far, in cool grey and white, but you can expect more varied finishes when the trainer arrives in April.
