When Nike designed the AIR PRESTO two things had priority: minimalism and comfort. Basically, a t-shirt for your feet. A sneaker you would lace up, but still had no idea you had any footwear on whatsoever. Something like that. 16 years have passed since the Presto was presented to the world – a lot of time to think about future additions and especially enhancing its comfort level. Thanks to improved materials this was a walk in the park eventually. A dynamic mesh upper which supports every step you take. The preformed midfoot cage is even lighter than the upper and provides a pleasant and appreciative feeling – without neglecting its stability and therefore improving your balance.

To assure a dependable cushioning, the phylon midsole extends over the shoe's full length. Duralon improves the Presto's outsole with vertical as well as horizontal flex notches. Thereby a superb traction on various surfaces and tracks is granted. Additionally, a multidirectional flexibility has been enabled at the same time. Nike has definitely put some work into their popular sneaker – with latest technologies being the main culprit. But – of course – we can't complain!

Brand information: nike

When it comes to basketball, there is no way around Nike – the brand with the Swoosh belongs to the game like dunks, three-pointers and cross-overs. Whether in the NBA, European leagues or your neighborhood streetball court – the world’s largest manufacturer of sports equipment is a staple in all things basketball since the 1980s.
The Nike „Blazer“, released in 1973, was the company’s first sneaker designed specifically for basketball. While the shoe was very functional for its time and was worn by NBA scoring machine George „Iceman“ Gervin, Nike still was not able to step out of other sports companies’ shadows. Following models of the early 80s, like the now legendary „Air Force 1“ and „Dunk“ also did not manage the success the company had hoped for. That all changed when in 1984/85 Michael Jordan decided to conquer the NBA and the shoe game with Nike. While the „Blazer“ was Nike’s way of politely knocking on the door of the basketball-sneaker world, they blew it out of its frame with the success of „His Airness“ and the „Air Jordan 1“.

Nike is the frontrunner in basketball

Ever since then Nike changed the game of basketball. The triumph of the AJ1 was not only the birth of the iconic „Air Jordan“ - dynasty. It also paved the way for a variety of shoe lines like the Flight, Hyperdunk, Air Max and Foamposites. Today about 60 percent of the NBA’s players rock the Swoosh. Among them are some of the biggest names of the game: From Sir Charles Barkley in the 90s, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant in the 2000s, to Lebron James and Kevin Durant today – the superstars of the NBA achieve mindblowing feats wearing their signature Nike sneakers.
Nike not only specializes in shoes though. These days ballers can dress up in perfomance sportswear bearing the Swoosh from t-shirts to hoodies, sweat pants, shorts, sweat bands and socks. Wearing Nike you can be sure that while playing your next game not only will you be outfitted in highly functional and valuable gear – you will also look pretty damn good wetting jumpers from all over the court.
