Instant Happiness Returns: The Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit
The Nike icon is updated with modern materials and technology to deliver the ultimate in lightweight comfort.
Originally released in 2000, the Nike Air Presto became famous for its irreverent advertising, alpha sizing and ahead-of-its-time sock-like construction.
In the decade and a half since, the shoe has transcended performance running to become a sport style fixture. Now, 16 years after its introduction, Nike is updating the icon with new materials and technology. The result is the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit.
The shoe’s signature one-to-one fit becomes even more profound through the use of Flyknit in the upper, which delivers stretch in the collar, ventilation in the toe and tongue, and support in the heel and underneath the toecap.
In another first for the Presto franchise, the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit features a mid-cut collar, which lends a modern aesthetic. The TPU cage is reengineered to fit the Flyknit upper, while the ultra tooling with rubber in high contact wear areas delivers improved comfort and durability.

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.
