Back in 2016, fashion label ACRONYM collaborated with Nike for the Air Presto Mid, a sneaker that echoed designer Errolson Hugh’s utility-focused ethos. The shoe’s zippered collar allowed for easy on-off functionality, while the classic mesh upper and midfoot overlays evolved the support structure of the original 2000 Presto.
Returning for a second trio of ACRONYM x Nike Air Presto Mid releases, Hugh pulls a bold tech-inspired colour and graphics scheme. This gives the silhouette a new twist, and one connected to the current “visual projects” he is undertaking by twisting his ACRONYMS’s signature “A” into a camouflage pattern. Although we wouldn’t recommend these shoes for tactical situations. It’s a similar design approach to what was used in the other bold collaboration VaporMax Moc 2 x ACRONYM.
The new shoe releases in three colourways — Cool Grey/Black, White Dynamic Yellow/Black, and Racer Pink with Photo Blue/White/Black. ACRONYM x Nike Air Presto Mid arrives in Australia September 20.
