We get the first look at a big shoe launch this week – The Nike Air Presto x Off-White – part of the collection by Virgil Abloh aptly named “The Ten” – presenting iconic Nike shoes with a fashionable twist.
Famed New York designer Virgil Abloh caused a large amount of hype when he announced that he would be designing for Nike last year in 2017. The sneaker community went into overdrive with lots of rumours circulating and leaked images but eventually the first version of ‘The Ten’ series was launched in November 2017.
Inspired by industrial and contemporary design influences, Off-White takes the ever popular Nike Air Presto sneaker a gives it a sensational transformation which has been a massive hit on the street. It features numerous artistic details such as the oversized “AIR” insignia which is located on the velcro heel strap at the back of the shoe.
Differing from the original Nike Presto silhouette, this sneaker sports a laser cut mesh on the upper and a chunky, padded tongue. It is super comfortable and delivers that secure sports shoe fit which is both breathable and lightweight.
The shoe is a powerful black colourway across the upper and midsole which gives extra impact to the stitched white Nike ‘Swoosh’ which sits on the outside of the shoe and behind the dark lace cage with black laces.
The synthetic cable tie gives the Nike Air Presto x Off-White the classic street aesthetic that so many of its fans crave.
The Nike Air Presto x Off-White is scheduled to release initially across exclusive outlets and at Nike.com on the 27th July. It will be a difficult one to cop, but stay tuned to the outlets listed on this page and keep an eye out for raffles too.
