It was a regular Wednesday night and of buddy of mine and I decided to make a stop at the Nike outlets to test our luck. After walking up and down a few aisles, I was disappointed and decided it’s time to check the back wall when out of nowhere, this bright luminescent orange made me feel some type of way. It was a quick blast from the past, so I pulled the trigger. In my hands I held a pair of Nike Lunar Prestos, (Nikes remodel of the extremely popular classic released back in 2000, the Air Presto) and for $30 bucks, why not?

The newly remodeled Presto has made it’s way back onto shelves in 2013, and this time it’s better. Unlike the Air Prestos, which were sized from XXS – XXL, have finally made the switch to traditional sizes, making it a bit easier for everyone to find their size. Nike has also done away with the full plastic armor and designed this unique lace cage broken into two separate sectors, one for the forefoot, and one for the heel. These are definitely one of the better Nike Retro’s we’ve seen and I think they’ve done a wonderful job. They shoe is very true to the original, but with up to date performance-type modifications. Bravo Nike.
