The New Nike Drop
The Ten: Air Presto X Off-White 'Black/White-Cone'
They dropped July 27th, last Friday. The Air Presto is a maximalist take on the early 2000's icon, with design elements that have been added into the cage and the heel of the shoe, which I'm sure everyone will like. The Air Presto is the second time around for Virgil Abloh (he previously released it back on Oct 29, 2017) and I believe is the 18th sneaker collaboration with Nike soon to be 19 on August 3rd when the Air Presto "White" drops. A Large number of these collaborations commenced last year and were so successful, why not keep going? What makes Virgil Abloh's collaborations so special? It's in the details. You never lose the sneaker it's just enhanced with some of the smallest tweaks that make it the perfect combination of Off-White and Nike. Like the way, Virgil puts certain words in parentheses and adds handwritten messages to some of the sneakers soles, and let's not forget the infamous tag that's added or the miss match laces and just the right amount of color added that's added in all the right spots, which is probably one of my favorite details, it gives the sneaker this industrial feel like it's done but not quite finished and I love it.
Now if your thinking you can't afford these designer sneakers, think again they are all moderately priced, the hard part is finding them. Because the release dates are so widely anticipated by sneakerheads and fashions elite, that they sell out so fast most people didn't even know they existed! Where to buy these coveted sneakers, well it depends on where you live. If you're in North America, then check out, Kith, Bait, Undefeated, Concepts, Notre Shop, Goat. If you're in Europe check out, Solebox, Sneakersnstuff, END.Clothing, Voo. Make you sure you check out various places cause prices sometimes vary.
