Originally released in 2000, the Nike Air Presto became famous for its irreverent advertising, alpha sizing and ahead-of-its-time sock-like construction. In the decade and a half since, the shoe has transcended performance running to become a sport style fixture.

The TPU cage is reengineered to fit the Flyknit upper, while the ultra tooling with rubber in high contact wear areas delivers improved comfort and durability. Look for both mens and women’s colorways to release this Thursday, May 5th.
