Nike ACG has left an indelible mark on both fashion and the brand as a whole, with many of the sub-creations label’s achieving cult status today. And, while we wait to see what the line-up will feature next, the Swoosh’s mainline is paying tribute in other ways.
The latest homage comes in the form of the Air Presto, which features a very subtle (almost horror-inspired) cameo from the Hike Nike Man on the insole. His white, toothy smile and vacant eyes emerge from the dark black void of the foot bed, indicating the colorway’s ACG influences. And without this graphic cue, the inspiration would be lost, mistaking it for a simple nod to the colours of the All Conditions Gear. The polka dot toe and bright palette, on the other hand, are a nod to the bearded mascot himself, most notably his patterned shorts and red-Swooshed tee.
Check out the official images added below for a closer look at this upcoming Air Presto. These will most likely be available very soon on Nike.com and at select retailers.
Additionally, the Dunk High University Red is scheduled to release in March.
