The Nike Air Presto Linen is a comfortable and stylish addition to the line up of Air Max apparel that the brand has come out with in recent years. Consisting of a soft and light fabric made from linen, it is certainly one of the lightest running shoes currently available in the market. It is also one of the lightest overall shoes you can buy, with a weight of just 158 grams. The Nike Air Presto Linen compliments this lightness with a shock absorption level of just eight grams, making it extremely comfortable for any style of outdoor sport.
This lightweight nature is one of the main reasons why the Nike Air Presto Linen is able to meet such high standards when it comes to cushioning and shock absorption. While other shoes like the Asics and the Adidas remain to be among the heavy hitters when it comes to cushioning and shock absorption, the Nike Air Presto Linen manages to just barelysqueak by, thanks to its special blend of rubber compounds. This makes it one of the better air sole running shoes on the market. Combined with its five-layer rubber outerwear, it ensures that your feet are taken care of no matter how long you are going to be out in the elements.
It is important to mention, though, that this shoe also has one unique characteristic, which is its patented Dri-FIT fabric. The Dri-FIT fabric allows air to flow through much more quickly, which in turn improves both weight and airflow. That improved weight distribution then gives the Nike Air Presto Linen a much better posture as well. All in all, though, it is simply one of the most comfortable running shoes you will ever put on, thanks to its five layers of rubber and its hypoallergenic nature.
