Missed out on Errolson Hugh’s Acronym x Nike Air Presto Mids in 2016? You can make up for lost chances because the pairs have been released once more, this time in three different color schemes that are just as the striking as the previous versions. This issue follows other collaborations between Hugh and Nike, which include new colorways for the VaporMax Moc 2 and 2016 Prestos, also released in a trio. The designer retains some of the important elements from the earlier versions, but also slightly alters the 2018 shoes to give them a welcome twist.
Where to Buy
Release Date: September 20, 2018
The shoes have a construction that’s been designed quickly, although that does not mean that it has not been subjected to tests to guarantee that it will not fail in terms of fit and support. From the zippers, pull cords, down right to the materials, everything has been checked so that it won’t go in the way of performance. The Acronym branding is pretty prominent on the pairs, which come in three colorways:
- Racer Pink/Photo Blue-White-Black
The Acronym x Nike Air Presto Mid released in three colorways is among the pair’s many strengths. Just like the versions that came before this most recent issue, the mids are standouts in color and style, especially the Racer Pink that has more pops of color compared to the other two. The features that made the 2016 version unique and eye-catching can also be seen here: the neoprene upper, the extended ankle collar, and the pull tabs. The Presto, which is made to fit like a sock, becomes more functional with the mid silhouette for the support it provides. Breathable and stretchable, the shoes come with soft leather, and mesh on the collar and by the forefoot. The dual-zipper mechanism secures the pair even better on the feet.
The Acronym x Nike Air Presto Mid only comes in full sizes, so move up to a full one if you normally take half sizes; it is not suggested to go the other way around because the sneakers are already pretty snug and you wouldn’t want to constrict the feet too much. The shoes generally are narrow and long, and there’s some space left by the toe box. The softness of the shoes’ foam allows for comfort, but it will also lead to the material crinkling easily. Others have had complaints regarding the quality of the pair, saying that there were noticeable glue stains on different areas of the kicks.
