As we previewed last month, September sees the launch of the Nike Makers' Experience at the Nike By You Studio at 45 Grand in New York, featuring a custom design process that allows visitors to create a one-of-a-kind version of the Nike Presto X in less than 90 minutes. The process, blending digital design with traditional footwear making, starts with a series of graphic options, which can be generated from either Nike heritage or on-the-spot inspirations -- a birthday or anniversary, for example. Once the final design is chosen, available in a virtually infinite combination of color choices and patterns, the shoe -- offered in traditional and slip-on iterations -- is built in the studio in roughly less than an hour. 

Sadly, the invite-only experience will initially be limited to friends and family, as well as select Nike+ members.
