Few things are more quintessentially retro than cassette tapes and a bold “Grape” color combination — a style that’s adorned everything from Air Jordan 5s to classic paper cups — so Nike has combined both for their newest React Presto colorway, titled the “Cassette.” An updated take on the classic Nike Presto, this React-equipped sneaker offers the same sock-like feel and fit, but adds fresh stylings and modern-day technology for a compelling fusion of old and new. The upper combines white mesh and synthetic materials, while accents arrive via the React Presto’s signature abstract midfoot cage in teal plus black suede overlays on both the heel and tongue. Small purple Swooshes then appear on both the aforementioned midfoot cage and the toebox to provide just enough branded flair. Down below, the white React midsole offers a familiar cored-out look and more black/purple embellishments, while the shoe is then completed by a purple cassette tape on the teal insole. Check out official images below, and expect these React Prestos to release on Nike.com in the coming weeks for $120 USD.
