Dialing down the color on a range of some of their revolutionary runners, Nike reissues a quartet of flex-grooved kicks with their upcoming Free “Genealogy” Black Pack. Strung together via the recurring theme of black uppers set atop grey soles, the desaturated pack includes the likes of the Air Presto, Free OG, Sock Racer and Free Run 2 as simplicity works in favor of selection to bring the collection together. Peep the pics of the 10th Anniversary Free “Genealogy” Black Pack below, and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for updates and release info.
Nike Air Presto
The Nike Air Presto is an Alpha Project design made for running and casual wear. Color blocking, snug fit, and lightweight construction are major strong points of this innovative Nike design. Stretch mesh composes the upper supported by a cage lacing system. Unlike standard shoe sizing, the Nike Air Presto runs from sizes XXXS-XXXL.
Enjoying a second go-around, the Nike Air Presto is reintroduced in a new Neutral Grey/Cyber colorway, giving the old model new life. Over the soft toe box and mesh tongue, neutral grey sets the tone of the sneaker, flanked and caged in by hyper blue plastic on both side and the toe cap. Cyber serves accent duty holding down branding throughout and across the inner lining. Check out this new Air Presto in detail in the photos below and hit up Titolo to grab a pair for €118.09 (~$164).
The Nike Air Presto was an innovator in the lightweight running movement, and now the model is making a heavy retro return. A squadron blue and vivid sulfur style code is the latest rendition of the ultra-low silhouette, making for a subtle makeup with a flash of color. The navy blue tone composes most of the Presto’s neoprene and mesh upper, as well as the flexible rubber cage and heel clip. Yellow completes the fab five colorway on the Swoosh branding and inner lining, all riding on top of a stadium grey midsole and black outsole. Swoop a pair today from Titolo.
It’s hard to believe that the Nike Air Presto is already 14 years old, and now the revolutionary design is making a retro return for 2014. The lightweight silhouette was a game-changer at the turn of the century, and now comes back in original form all the way down to the colorway. Still modern in its appearance, this Presto uses a flexible grey upper, highlighted by red accents on the midsole and detailing throughout.
