Presto QS x Hello Kitty - University Blue/Black-White-Lt Crimson
Sneakerheads rejoice, and Hello Kitty fans beam with excitement with the release of the Nike x Hello Kitty collection. The story of the Hello Kitty Prestos began back in 2004 when Sanrio called on Nike to help celebrate the loveable feline's 30th Anniversary. A pack of four colourways followed, created by Hiroshi Fujiwara and Hello Kitty waffle making, shoe designer extraordinaire Steve Smith.
The understanding from Steve Smith was that up to 500 of each pair was going to get made when in fact, 12 were made for Sanrio's friends and family. What followed was deep intrigue from the sneaker community that had turned into an obsession of when we were going to get the release we should have got all those years back! Well, it's here!
Coming in University Blue, the Presto QS features Hello Kitty through the neoprene upper and featured on the back heel cage for an extra cute touch. Nike has added the extra touch of a special box with tissue paper to match to drive the release home. The story and history of the shoe are enough for me to grab a pair! I'd also be tempted to kit out the family with smaller sizes available here and here.
If you're in Melbourne, select IN-STORE pick up to pick up your pair from our Hello Kitty pop-up store.
