Over the past six months, we'd caught wind that Nike would be reviving a number of classic Olympic Games-inspired make-ups from the Swoosh archives for 2016 – including the Air Presto, Air Max BW and the mighty Air More Uptempo. Well, as it turns out, they aren't the only models Nike has decided to chuck on the production line, because there's a stack more patriotic medal-winners on the way, both old and new.
Hitting stores this 4th of July, Nike will not only be dropping the Presto, Uptempo and BW, but will also bring back the Team USA make-up of the Air Pegasus '92, along with all-new Stars & Stripes colour-ups of the Zoom Pegasus 92/16 and Air Presto Flyknit Ultra. Each shoe in the collection is a mix of the classic red, white and blue, with subtle – and in the case of the Flyknit Presto, not so subtle – hits of glistening gold. Clearly the Swoosh are expecting a 'certain country' to clean up down in Rio!
