The Nike Air Presto was a revolutionary release from the Swoosh’s turn of the century Alpha Project, a featherweight running shoe that came in t-shirt sizes and whose neoprene sock/TPU lacing system combo has influenced everything from the Air Max 90 Current (Huarache) to the Nike Basketball Hyperdunk series. The Air Presto had been AWOL for the better part of the noughties, the reorganization of Nike Sport Culture into Nike Sportswear resulting in a variety of simple colorways in early 2009. About a year later, we saw a bunch of patterned Prestos, but by June, we were back to OG-style clean colorways, a trend that extended through this spring when seven new styles hit retailers. These new Air Prestos, then, can be seen as a slight progression back toward more involved designs, their colorblocking pattern drawing attention to the Presto’s hidden ‘mudguard’.
