Nike’s Air Presto is back once more, and this time around its a real head-turner…
Designed by Tobie Hatfield – the brother of Tinker Hatfield – Nike’s Air Presto first touched down in 2000 and was known as a ‘T-shirt for the foot’ thanks to its snug sock-like uppers and unique clothing-inspired sizing.
This season, the Beaverton-brand reimagine the ‘00s icon’s sock-like uppers in a striking zebra-print guise that’s inspired by the football jersey South Korea was due to don at the now postponed Tokyo Olympics.
Vibrant red and blue accents make up the supportive lace-cage and heel, along with a print of the Taegukgi flag across the back as a further nod to the country.
They’re also decked with Swoosh branding to the vamp, further nods to the country on the footbed, plus cushioning Air-tech in the midsole. Very nice indeed.
