The slip-on phenomenon has since evolved with Nike's Presto as the industry's first mainstay. As running shoe technology continued to develop, lightweight runners became the craze.

Having kept this in mind, Nike created a hybrid running shoe that incorporates both ideas -- the Flyknit running shoe was adapted to have the convenience and ease of the slip-on Presto. In developing the new shoe, Nike was able to capitalize on the lightweight shoe pattern that's proven to be successful in recent years.

Although bringing back an old favorite is a risk, the merging of the two different styles could prove to be a brilliant move for the retailer. By using Flyknit technology, Nike was able to transform the Presto into a hybrid running and walking shoe.
