The original Nike Air Presto
, originally released in 2000, was created as a kind of T-shirt for the foot, with a breathable and incredibly flexible sock-like elastic upper. Today, the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit
Racer Blue/Racer Blue/White of Men's Nike Running Shoe
updates the original with formfitting Flyknit for ultra-lightweight comfort.
Flyknit upper conforms to your foot for lightweight support
Signature TPU cage delivers midfoot support
Sockliner and outsole cut-outs enhance breathability and flexibility
Injected unit midsole provides lightweight comfort and durability
Mid-cut collar delivers a snug, supportive fit
Waffle-inspired outsole with durable rubber pods for traction
Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock. Nike embarked on a four-year mission with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—was refined. The result is a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper.
