With a versatile, new-yet-familiar look and an amicable price point, the Nike React Presto has quickly become a lifestyle favorite, and now it’s appeared in a bold colorway, complete with a detail that just might indicate it’s inspired by pirates. The lightweight and flexible fabric upper offers a wide swath of tropical tones, ranging from a hot red on the forefoot to rich green and yellow on the midfoot and a deep royal blue with a small pop of teal on the heel. Each color is then acknowledged by a single dot on the black suede heel overlay. The milky white midfoot cage secures flecked black rope laces, and down below, the generously-equipped React midsole features both blue and translucent black detailing. However, if you peer into the collar, you’ll find the most interesting embellishment: a cartoon-esque sun logo complete with a pirate-style eye patch covering his left eye on the insole. It’s up for interpretation what this logo may mean, but it’s certain that these React-equipped Nike Prestos are one of the wildest makeups yet. They’re available at overseas stockists now and will likely arrive on Nike.com stateside in the coming weeks for $120 USD, so peep a complete set of images directly below in the meantime.
