The Air Presto’s been around since 2000 . But as mentioned previously, the shoe was conceptualized as early as 1996, which now makes it 20 years. Aside from the overall package – lightweight, comfortable, and fashion forward, the Presto had so many other things going for it — the ‘t-shirt sizing’, the cool nicknames, and the fact that it debugged the idea that you didn’t have to be a bulky shoe to have ‘Air’.
As we await the return of the Air Presto this May (and a lot more headed our way), check out the original 12 – the first 12 Nike Air Presto colorways, with their cool nicknames and even cooler ads Nike created for them.
