The original Nike Elite socks, released in 2008, introduced not just technical advancement but also an immediately iconic aesthetic. Eight years later, the new Nike Elite Versatility socks continue a legacy of radical design by adding new cushioning zones, enhanced fit and Swoosh placement running along the shin.

The intricate detail of the sock is evidenced by anatomically correct right and left designs, with foot-strike cushioning aligning with basketball-specific pressure patterns. Additional cushioning around the ankle and Achilles protects feet from abrasions, while thin ribbing is featured at flex points to enhance mobility. Dri-FIT fabric pulls sweat from the foot to help keep it dry and comfortable.
