The Nike Air Presto made a ceremonious return in 2015 thanks to a comeback of several original colorways that first released in 2000. Names like “Brutal Honey”, “Unholy Cumulus”, and “Trouble At Home” should ring a bell if you went after these runners, and we’ve already learned that other first-series editions like the  “Rabid Panda” and “Shady Milkman” are making their way to store shelves in 2016. For those who weren’t around (or didn’t pay attention) at the turn of the century, Nike created some awesome graphic ads to accompany each and every release; designer Monica Taylor designed all of the imagery, while Dylan Lee came up with the special nicknames (and even provided voice work for some of the ads. There was in fact a thirteenth original Air Presto, but according to Nike footwear designer Leon Witherow (also known as @prestology on Instagram), the brand just could not come up with a catchy name for that issue. Take a walk down memory lane below because we have all twelve of the original Air Presto prints just below.
