The Nike Air Presto was initially introduced in the late 90’s by legendary sneaker designer Tobie Hatfield who has worked on many beloved silhouettes known to many. His initial design goal was to create a form fitting shoe that almost felt like being bare foot. After many iterations it was not until a new material ‘space mesh’ was discovered which would build the base of the now named Nike Air Presto, making it both breathable and flexible.
Nike has kept the silhouette coming in many new colorways over the years as demand for the revolutionary silhouette has remand high. While the brand has tested many new palettes on their sneakers, one particular gradient design is coming back with a mix of sunset-themed color tones. The gradient offering, originally debuted as a Japan exclusive in 2001, covers the nylon shell transitioning from bright orange to a darker pink and purple. On the top, the cages add a touch of pastel blue over the design for added contrast making the entire design really mimic a sunset sky. The midsole, laces and lining come dressed in a bright white as an added base to the standout colorway. Other details for this 20th Anniversary rendition include an orange Nike logo on the midsole and blue outsole to complete the design.
