Millennial sneaker collectors remember when the Nike Air Presto was released in 2000. Marketed as “a t-shirt for your feet,” the silhouette premiered in thirteen colorways, all releasing at once. The sneaker featured a groundbreaking knit upper and was sized in an XXS – XL range. Animated commercials amplified the multi-part drop, with each shoe given playful monikers like Rabid Panda, Shady Milkman and Rogue Kielbasas.
The “Nike Hike” echoes the printed Prestos from the early aughts. A “Photo Blue” polka dot print covers the upper, contrasted by a gray tongue, pink laces, black external cage and green TPU heel counter.
Look out for the Nike Air Presto “Nike Hike” to release in the coming weeks with a $130 USD price tag.
