Nike Sportswear has unveiled this new colorway for one of their oldest/most iconic running silhouettes, the Pre Montreal Racer. First released in 1973, the Pre Montreal Racer was originally a racing spike shoe designed specifically for Steve Prefontaine, Nike’s first ever-sponsored athlete. At the age of 21, he clinched 4th position in the final of the coveted 5000 meters at the 1972 Munich Olympics, but despite this great achievement his full potential was seen by many to still be in the developing stages. Following Munich, Pre would break countless state and U.S. records in pursuit of his ultimate dream – winning a medal at the fast approaching 1976 Montreal Olympics. Pre tragically lost his life on May 30, 1975 when, for unknown reasons, he lost control of his orange MGB convertible after returning from a party. Featuring a two-tone suede and nylon upper and distinctive Nike Vintage treatment, they launch exclusively in the UK from size? stores.
