The Nike React Presto gets a new release date for May 2019.
Remixing a classic isn’t easy but Nike Sportswear seems to have done it again.
While the reception has been lukewarm thus far, consumers will likely make the upcoming React Presto the shoe of the Summer with its comfort, colorways and $120 price point.
This being a remixed classic, Nike made plenty of changes but also kept a lot of what made the Presto what it is.
- Bootie construction
- A midfoot cage and heel crash pad
- Nike employee-sourced, character-based color schemes
Familiar character-based colorways, introduced by the original Presto such as ‘Brutal Honey’ and ‘Rabid Panda’ will release on May 9. Nike by You (NIKEiD) versions of the Presto React that share favored old personas including ‘Brutal Honey’, ‘Rogue Kielbasa’, ‘Shady Milkman’ and ‘Unholy Cumulus’ — with space for personalization — are scheduled to release on the platform on the same day.
New colorways with their own personalities and characters begin releasing May 16 and will include monikers such as ‘Psychedelic Lava’, ‘Chatty Matador’, ‘Breezy Thursday’ and ‘Witness Protection’.
