OFF-WHITE x NIKE PRESTO (Black)
Introducing my most recent purchase and definitely a big win: the OFF-WHITE NIKE PRESTO in black. I was lucky enough to receive two confirmation emails stating I had won two raffles the day before their release date thanks to Kith and NakedCph. I entered numerous raffles and my once in a lifetime luck gave me not one but TWO of these glorious prestos.
Days before its official release date, I kept checking the SNKRS app in hopes that I didn't miss a shock drop. Last Thursday I was glued to my phone waiting for a reserve on SNKRS app however it failed me due to a "network error" aka another SNKRS glitch. I noticed a lot of people had that problem too and very few made it through reserve. On release day, I picked up my pair at Kith SoHo and checked the app once again to see if it showed up on my feed like everyone expected but there was nothing. It ended up dropping on SNKRS July 31st.
SNKRS is bittersweet; definitely not one you can count on especially when purchasing any upcoming kicks from The Ten.
The presto silhouette is no stranger to me however this is my first Off-White sneaker and I'm still mind-blown over Virgil Abloh's significant tweaks in its design as I'm finally seeing it and holding it myself. I'm still deciding if I want to change the laces to the orange ones but for now I think I'll keep it all black. A few people have asked me via Instagram if I'm selling a pair. I'm definitely keeping one for myself and the second pair I will eventually sell but I'm in no rush to.
The white prestos are releasing this Friday, August 3rd. Again, select retails and mostly via raffles.
Good luck to everyone participating!
