Nike_Air_Presto_Ultra_Flyknit_4_native_1600

 

Originally released in 2000, the Nike Air Presto became famous for its irreverent advertising, alpha sizing, ultimate comfort and ahead-of-its-time sock-like construction.

In the decade and a half since, the shoe has transcended performance running to become a sport-style fixture. Now, 16 years after its introduction, Nike is updating the icon with new materials and technology to create the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit.

The shoe’s signature adaptable upper becomes even more pronounced through the use of Flyknit, which delivers stretch in the collar, ventilation in the toe and tongue, and support in the heel and underneath the toecap.

In another first for the Presto franchise, the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit features a mid-cut collar, which lends a modern aesthetic. The TPU cage is reengineered to fit the Flyknit upper, while the ultra tooling with rubber in high-contact wear areas improves comfort and durability.

The Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit will be available at the following stores starting May 5 at PhP 8,095 SRP:

  • Nike Park BGC
  • Nike Stadium Glorietta
  • Commonwealth
