“T-shirt for your feet”. That was how Nike described their Air Presto when it first announced the shoe in 2000. It was light, it was form fitting, and it was supremely comfortable – just like your favorite cotton tee. Now, 16 years after it was first released by the Oregon based sports apparel giant, you can get the shoe a brand new color-way. Introducing the Nike Air Presto Essentials Black/Gold.
It’s a simple look for the now classic sneaker, but it is a winning one. The neoprene upper, along with the phylon mid and outsole of this shoe are a dark, midnight black that draw a stark contrast from the richly gold midcage and toe box. For a little flourish, the shoe also includes a gold logo on the tongue and gold dots on the heel. The gold cage provides a solid but flexible support for the rest of the lightweight, breathable shoe, while the Duralon outsole paired with the air-sole heel unit provide cushioning on footstrikes. Right now you can get yourself a pair of these shoes starting at $120. [Purchase]
