Nike’s Air Presto Gets an All White Makeover

The comfortable Nike Air Presto silhouette has received some minor changes to its look. Known for sporting neoprene material along its sock-like upper, the Swoosh has decided to follow the mesh route in all white. Showcasing black detailing along the midsole and part of the outsole, you’ll also find reflective 3M hits on the sneaker’s pull tab. The rest of the model is covered in a crisp white from its laces to its lace caging and upper. There hasn’t been a confirmed stateside release for these as of yet, but stay tuned for further developments regarding the release of this clean colorway of a Nike classic.

Even though there will only by 12,000 pairs in circulation, that doesn’t at all take away from our excitement regarding the upcoming Air Jordan 12 “Wings” edition.

Nike Air Max Zero Ultra

Air_max_zero_1_hd_1600The Nike Air Max Zero returns in yellow with lightweight Ultra tooling for this year’s Air Max Day.

Last year Nike released the Air Max Zero, Tinker Hatfield’s original Air Max design, which eventually became the Nike Air Max 1. Though the idea for the shoe was put to paper 29 years ago, its first real-life manifestation incorporated nearly three decades of Nike Air innovation. It may not have been the first Nike Air Max, but without it, the Nike Air Max 1 would not exist.

The Nike Air Max Zero Ultra returns March 28 in yellow with lightweight Ultra tooling at Nike.com.

adidas Spezial “Clear White/Crystal White” Is a Traditionally Clean Option This Spring

Coming in this spring is a new rendition of the highly popular "Spezial" model from adidas. The sneaker, while labeled "Clear White/Clear White/Crystal White," comes in a subtle off-beige colorway while the sole is affixed with a coffee-cream brown for a slight contrast. A thin tongue follows adidas’ athletic tradition, and gold foil labeling on the lateral side adds one final bit of tonality to the overall cleanliness. With all the hype around Boost technology and Primeknit uppers, it’s nice to see adidas still kills it with simply clean colors on a great shoe.
Pick up your pair at select retailers, including Titolo, for approximately $100 USD.

The Golden State Warriors will lace up late evening Easter Sunday to take on the dismal Philadelphia 76ers.
