Nike’s popular Air Presto silhouette will be fitted with its latest React sole come 2019, according to leaked images posted by @yankeekicks. React, the brand’s newest cushioning technology, has enjoyed great success since its debut this year. First fitted to the Nike Epic React, a performance running sneaker, the revolutionary midsole has since gone on to establish its presence in Nike’s newest lifestyle sneakers – the latest being the Nike React ISPA and arguably the most popular iteration, the React Element 87.
This could well be a window into Nike’s plans for 2019, at least where it comes to the React midsole. It looks like Nike is banking on its latest cushioning technology to produce different iterations of its more established silhouettes, as is the case with the Nike Presto React. The Air Prestos, which are as good a functional runner as it is an irresistible on-feet accessory, is a longtime favorite among sneakerheads. But what do sneakerheads actually have to say about this leaked new silhouette? We check out the best tweets we’ve seen so far.
Some love it…

Some don’t like it all and jobs are on the line here.
Immediately fire whoever designed the Presto React @Nike

To be honest, this isn’t exactly wrong either.
Nike is really combining two existing shoe models to create a new silhouette.
The Nike Presto React is exactly what you think it is… Combining the Presto and React models together to make a shoe that looks a lot like the Adidas Alphabounce.
