John Mayer’s creative energy extends beyond his music. In addition to being a virtuoso on the six strings, he’s also known as a sneaker connoisseur, sporting hot kicks almost every time he hits the stage or steps out on the town. He even appeared in the marketing campaign for this year’s Acronym x Nike VaporMax collection.
His creativity and love of sneakers are both front and center in his new pair of custom Off-White x Nike Air Prestos, released in a colorful tie-dye treatment.
Not only did Mayer get his new white Virgil Abloh rendition of the Air Presto early — it releases globally on August 4 — but he already commissioned his pair in a tie-dye upper. The custom job was done by Online Ceramics, an apparel brand known for tie-dye T-shirts and bold retro-inspired graphics.
Mayer’s pair is actually the second custom-dyed version of the white Prestos the internet has seen so far, after a light blue version was shared on Instagram by Massimo Taylor of Berlin-based sneaker boutique Solebox.
With its white textile mesh upper, the latest Off-White x Nike Air Presto has already proven itself to be the perfect blank canvas for unlimited color customization possibilities. Don’t be surprised if you see it show up in more unusual remodels after it is officially released this weekend.
