Nike and Hello Kitty have been trying to forge a relationship for decades now. For an idea, the first true fruit of union was delivered in 2004. Back then, Hello Kitty themed Nike Air Prestos were supposed to be released in quantities of 500 pairs, but that didn’t happen. .
Only a handful of these sneakers were made. A super limited edition of the Nike Hello Kitty Air Prestos was released which left fans disappointed. But as true fans do, these sneakerheads never lost hope and for Hello Kitty’s sake, a pair is now officially releasing in a more fan-favorite edition this year.
The first images of the new pair were released earlier this year and there has been a buzz among fans ever since. Finally now, aficionados can breathe a sigh of relief as Sole Retriever reports, the new Nike Hello Kitty sneakers are likely to drop anytime in the summer of 2022.
The sneakers are rumored to arrive in four colorways starting with the white and sky blue silhouette first. This one will consistently feature signature Hello Kitty graphics across the bluish upper, while translucent cages sit around the toe (printed with Hello Kitty branding), midfoot and heel.
Important fashion details
The sky blue hue is nicely complemented with white laces and midsole. While the Hello-Kitty-looking sneaker will rest on a black outsole. Interestingly, the sneaker will likely come with a Hello Kitty-themed t-shirt and shorts.
Rumors suggest that this Nike x Hello Kitty capsule is set to hit the markets on May 27th. Pricing information is pretty sketchy right now, but there are few Kitty-loving sneakerheads who would think about the cost at this point. The release is more expected!
