Nike React Presto is a weird and wonderful take on a classic silhouette that’s bound to turn heads, although its certain to not be for everyone. React Presto carries the bootie construction, midfoot cage and heel crash pad of the Nike Air Presto adding React foam underfoot for what is said to be the most comfortable Presto ever.
Other enhancements include fluid, organic midsole geometry whatever that means and Eyestays at the heel and tongue for multiple lacing options. The Nike Presto React is available from May 16 through Nike online and priced at RRP $230.
When the Nike Air Presto arrived in 2000, Nike marketed the sneaker as a “T-shirt for the foot.” It even sold in extra-small to extra-large t-shirt sizing. Each colourway also became a character, crowd-sourced from Nike employees. Characters included Shady Milkman and Unholy Cumulus.
The new React Presto characters/colourways include the sweet but Brutal Honeybee, the cute-turned Rabid Panda and the psychedelic Lava Twist. There are also custom options available through Nike By You design studio. These characters include Chatty Matador, Breezy Thursday and Witness Protection.
React Presto is as unconventional as Nike can get. At least without Virgil Abloh at the helm.

New Balance FF Roav Runners Go the Distance
This week marks the global launch of the Fresh Foam Roav from New Balance. This new performance shoe channels equal parts running, style and comfort to manage absolutely everything in your day to day life. We’re talking the obvious like fitness and training. Plus, nothing is stopping this silhouette from attending brunch, coffee, work, shopping and travel.
Fresh Foam Roav is designed to cradle your foot for what New Balance says is an incomparable ride. The modern ultra-heel construction offers seamless comfort, and a full-ground contact rubber + NDURANCE outsole gives a great underfoot feel.
The midsole is plush and lightweight. The stretch webbing expands to cater for uniquely-shaped feet. Rubber and NDURANCE materials are both featured in the outsole to ensure the performance durability expected of a modern running shoe.
The New Balance Fresh Foam Roav is available now in-store and online priced at RRP $140 per pair. While you’re there, sign up to the New Balance mailing list to save 15% off your first order. Can’t think of a good reason why you shouldn’t.

Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% is the Fastest Shoe Ever
Nike has updated its marathon footwear taking on board key feedback from world champion runners to create what is said to be the fastest shoe ever. The new iteration is dubbed Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% and features an improved upper, a re-tooled midsole and a redesigned traction pattern to help athletes cross the line faster.
Feedback came from Mo Farah, Shalane Flanagan who wore the previous Vaporfly 4% during a very wet Boston Marathon, and Eliud Kipchoge after he ran a very wet race in Berlin. Although three athletes could never make for a well-rounded sample group, so Nike’s Sport Research Lab takes on board feedback from dozens of athletes from professional levels through to weekend warriors.
“This shoe is truly the result of our athletes, sports scientists, engineers and designers closely collaborating throughout the entire process of design, testing and manufacturing,” says Brett Holts, Nike VP of Running Footwear. “We are all so excited to see the NEXT% continue to push the limits of human performance on marathon courses around the world.”
The shoe itself features a new material construction named Vaporweave. Lighter than Nike’s Flyknit construction, Vaporweave is breathable and absorbs far less water from sweat and rain, so it stays airy and dry throughout a marathon.
A thin foam pod inside the heel keeps the Achilles happy as the kilometres (or miles) add up. There’s more Nike ZoomX foam in the midsole to further increase energy return. The foam has been redistributed to provide a more stable feeling and help maximise energy return at the critical toe-off. The laces are also slightly offset to alleviate pressure along the sensitive part of the foot.
Despite the 15% increase in foam, the ZoomX Vaporfly Next% shoe weighs the same as the previous version. Even when accounting for the full-length curved carbon fibre plate embedded within the foam. The plate increases stiffness and provides a sensation of propulsion.
You can add a pair of Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% to your marathon outfit when they go on sale July 4.
