Presto plus React Boot equals React Presto Undercover

Jun Takahashi brings the original look of the Presto sneaker and some design details from the previous collaboration between Undercover and Nike, the React Boot, together. Because of this, this iteration of the React Presto looks more robust than a regular Nike React Presto.

The Nike x Undercover React Presto is a lifestyle shoe that is bound to get the attention of many people no matter how subtle your overall ensemble is.

A bulky version of the original React Presto sneaker

The most prominent characteristic one will notice is that this version of React Presto is bulkier than a regular one. That is because Jun Takahashi brought the React Boot’s rugged outsole to the React Presto sneaker.

Nike works with Undercover to create the React Presto Undercover

Continuing their long-standing relationship, Nike and Undercover released the new version of the React Presto.
