Vicariously Run Across Mountain Ranges Through This Nike Air Presto

The Nike Air Presto may currently be perceived entirely as a fashion-first product, but its origins lie in performance-running. Having recently emerged in a colorway reminiscent of the Hike Nike Man’s outdoorsy outfit, the “t-shirt for your feet” (as it was touted by the brand’s marketers) has just surfaced with details related to a road race through the mountains.

Clad in eye-catching yellow and red, as well as understated black and white, the Tobie Hatfield, Kevin Hoffer and Bob Mervar-designed creation maintains the same construction that made it an industry-pushing product in the year 2000. Neoprene material comes together with molded support structures at the mid-foot and heel, with the most latter donning graphics of mountain ranges. A traditional illustration of a zig-zag road lands on the forefoot, running right to just underneath the semi-translucent cages at the profiles. Sole units underfoot forgo any overt nods to the Presto‘s theme, which is likely to be the case with other Nike Sportswear products sure to join it as part of an expansive collection.

Firm launch details haven’t been disclosed by the brand, but that’s likely to change as the spring and summer inch closer. While you wait, enjoy official images of the sneakers ahead.

In related sneaker news, the Air Jordan 3 “Cardinal Red” is now expected to release on February 19th instead of on February 24th.
