Originally released 20 years ago for the 2000 Olympics, the Nike Air Presto Australia Olympic is finally set to release to the general consumer for the very first time.
Debuted in 2000 to celebrate the Australian Olympic Team, this edition of the Nike React Presto is one of the most limited iterations the sneaker has seen. Only given out to select friends and family of Nike and Australian athletes, the only way to secure a pair for yourself was to pay a pretty penny or get lucky enough to thrift an old pair. Now as we’ve seen many prized colorways return over the past couple of years, why should this Air Presto behave any different?
Featuring an upper of Teal Green, yellow accents are added in perfect amounts on the toe box with embroidered stars as well as yellow Nike branding. A white lace and heel cage contrast the bright colors while “AUS” is written in on the back of the heel in support of the Australian team. White laces along with a white midsole and a split black and yellow rubber outsole then complete the fresh returning design.
