In an attempt to create footwear that mimicked the natural motion of human anatomy, Tobie Hatfield, brother of Tinker, spearheaded the project. They created a minimalistic silhouette that featured a sock like fit, a cage to keep ones foot in place, a lightweight phylon midsole with a duralon outsole and a space foam upper but the most standout feature of the Nike Air Presto was the sizing. Nike marketed the shoe as "a tee shirt for your feet". They did away with numerical sizing and went for a more familiar sizing ranging from 3XS through 2XL. The material used for the uppers took very well to graphics so most of the initial releases featured graphics much like the ones pictured. Commonly known as the "Lightning" Prestos, the formal name is "Trouble at Home". The Presto line was vast in spin-off models with some being laceless, while others featured rubber cages. Thanks to its wide initial release, the Presto became somewhat of a collector's model as people wanted to grab all colors and prints, some of the more rare featuring characters like Hello Kitty. Once it became a retro model, the Presto was seen much more commonly seen and still remains as a staple in Nike's colorful retro catalogue.
