Taking a more technical approach than its previous collaborative pairs such as the Air Max 720 and the Daybreak, these three React Presto’s offer a mixture of textiles, overlapping layers and unique finishes that elevate the original design. At the hand of Jun Takahashi, the latest UNDERCOVER collaboration comes in “Mahogany/White,” “White/Black” and “Black/White,” which although are seemingly more understated than previous pairs, feature an all-over speckled finish — similar to the aforementioned 720.
Differentiating this collaboration from the original pair is its reworked sole unit, which now comes equipped with a chunky outsole paired with the signature React technology. Other additions include more overlapping layers, adding panels to the toe box and heel for a sturdier structure. Lastly, UNDERCOVER and Nike craft the new offering from both coated and un-coated mesh, leather, and plastic — the latter being used prominently on the rear where you’ll find UNDERCOVER’s signature underlined “U” emblem.
