As strange of a model as it may seem, the Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra seen here is indeed happening.
This mid-cut reintroduction of the classic Presto strips the original of its neoprene and mesh sections for a more modern Flyknit build on the upper. The shoe terminates at the top with a collar vaguely reminiscent of those found on recent soccer-to-street transition models like the Nike Flyknit Mercurial and the Nike Air Footscape Magista.
It's unclear how soon this shoe will be in stores, but its presence at a Foot Locker Europe preview event suggests that a retail release isn't too far away. Watch for updates on that here at Sole Collector.
