UPDATE: When BEAMS buyer Shinya Arai posted photos of a multi-colored pair of Nike React Prestos, some keen followers couldn’t help but notice the apparel he was wearing to match the kicks. With closer inspection of the photos, it appears Shinya is wearing a white tee that hosts a Swoosh filled with a mashup of the same colors seen in the shoes. A pair of nylon shorts with the same Swoosh is stamped with a logo that’s found on the insole of the sneakers. Other items include a black version of the aforementioned tee, embroidered socks and a vibrant five-panel hat. Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming collaboration.
ORIGINAL STORY (May 14, 2019):
Japanese fashion brand and retailer BEAMS is supposedly collaborating with Nike on a forthcoming React Presto sneaker. BEAMS buyer Shinya Arai took to social media to showcase the new collaboration, which shows off the shoes unique color palette and half-and-half concept. The first photo Arai posted includes the original Air Presto collaboration that BEAMS did in celebration of the imprint’s 40th anniversary, with the right shoe being a never before seen shoe. Just recently Nike had introduced the new silhouette, so it could very well be an upcoming collab.
The new sneaker totes a vibrant color scheme that amplifies hues of orange and red, further contrasted by white and purple throughout. Hits of blue can be seen on the heel, with green incorporated into the unique lacing cage. You can take a look at the new sneakers in the gallery above. Stay tuned for more information.
In case you missed it, Starwalk is releasing two new retro sporting-inspired colorways.
