The Nike Air Presto ‘What The’ is the Ultimate OG MashupRelease: 27 August 2021
Nike essentially have pioneered the ‘What The’ concept for over a decade now, and the next iteration of this conglomerated theme is on the Air Presto, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. In what can be considered a belated and continued marker of this milestone, the ‘What The’ execution sees individual elements drawn from the Presto’s original colourways from the year 2000 placed all together on the one pair.,
Presto fans will enjoy recognising and identifying the various OGs that form this new colourway. More obvious patterns and finishes – plus their quirky names – are easily identified, such as the lightning pattern of the ‘Trouble At Home’ featured on the right shoe vamp. While the mint green heel clip of the ‘Unholy Cumulus’ is a deeper cut that more hardcore collectors will pick up. With so many different panels and colours on show, this is definitely one of the most interesting colours of the Air Presto yet, if not ever.
This isn’t the first time the Air Presto has gone mismatched. A few years ago, the similarly-themed ‘Greedy’ theme remixed the model with multiple colours adorning each panel for a unique effect.
The Air Presto ‘What The’ is scheduled to release on August 27 from select Nike retailers.
