Thanks to the visually pleasing simplicity of its design, and the ‘t-shirt for your feet’ marketing tagline that introduced the shoe, the Air Presto enjoys something of a laid-back reputation, but in actuality, the Presto was built on disruption.
Originally conceived in response to a particularly ill-fitting runner distributed at a 1996 producting meeting, the prototype for what would become the Presto underwent four years of development before the perfect formula of V-notch collar, stretchable in every direction spacer mesh, and just the right amount of external support structure was perfected. The Presto name was inspired by the almost magical feeling of the perfect fit.
Having just celebrated its 20th anniversary, the original form of the Air Presto makes a triumphant return, in an array of colorways, and it still looks as revolutionary as it did on day one.
