June is here, which means summer is here. Many of us are now enjoying the warmer weather and hitting the beach.  Unfortunately, your beach footwear can't be quite as radical as it was twenty years ago, since Nike no longer produces their Aqua Socks in a wide selection of totally 90's neon colors.  In this ad we see a group of manly surf bros, all of which apparently "keep their socks on".  Forget Yeezy II's, bring back the Aqua Boot!
