Red trainers have quite the checkered history. Take the Yeezy Red Octobers, Air Jordan Infrared 23s or Puma Classic Fusions – three styles that, while great in their own way, are a little too fire engine for our feet. Breaking with tradition, Nike’s latest release is all-red and alright by us.

The Air Presto Utility Team Red drop is a welcome alternative to the usual pillar box shade. Along with burgundy uppers made from a waterproof synthetic leather, there’s all the usual hallmarks of the lifestyle runner including a moulded midfoot cage overlay, padded Air-Sole heel and tonal branding.

Good news if you want to rock red without feeling red-faced.

The Nike Air Presto Utility Team Red trainers are available now at Overkill, priced approx. £119.
