During the 1990's, Nike led the way in developing Running Footwear and back in 2000, we saw the introduction of the Nike Presto. Project co-designer, Tobie Hatfield wanted the Presto to let the foot take control of the shoe providing you with as much of a natural ride as possible whilst on the move. The form fitting sock like upper provides maximum flexibility for your foot whilst the cage like lacing system kept your foot in place and provided stability and support.
The Presto soon started to gain momentum and was one of the first shoes to have digitally printed graphics on it's neoprene upper. The 'Trouble at Home' Presto was one of the more popular OG colourways that featured printed graphics on the upper. 2002 saw the Presto make it onto the NikeiD Program which saw the Checkerboard application go down a storm, particularly in Japan.
'Triple Black' Trainers have been around forever, I personally loved them whilst I was at school as you could wear them instead of your School shoes. Thanks to the rise of the Nike Air Huarache, 'Triple Black' is almost a house hold term these days and this Spring sees Nike colour up the Presto in a fitting, yep you guessed it 'Triple Black' colourway. To mix things up a bit, these are also known as the 'Black Out' Presto.
