Double the colours, double the fun! This Nike Air More Uptempo “Black / Navy / Red” splits the giant “AIR” lettering into two contrasting hues! Seemingly a great alternative colourway for the 1996 Team USA Basketball Team, the popular Uptempo makes its return once more.
What makes some sneakers become popular is their unique and out-of-this-world aesthetic. That’s exactly what Nike had in mind with the arrival of the Nike Air More Uptempo. Worn by NBA legend Scottie Pippen, the Air More Uptempo ended up spanning beyond basketball and into streetwear. This is definitely a shoe you’d never lose sight of because of its gigantic “AIR”.
Released in 1996, the Nike Air More Uptempo became one of Scottie Pippen’s unofficial signature sneakers. And the most famous at that. The large “AIR” letterings on the sides weren’t only for show, the panels are meant to add stability and reinforcement too. Designer Wilson Smith took design inspiration from oversized figures popularised by graffiti and pop art in the 90s.
Below the “AIR” is the thick foam midsole which houses the visible Air Max units. Bulky and heavy as it gets, the Air More Uptempo is one heavy-duty shoe; although it’s now better off for streetwear than basketball.
The new Nike Air More Uptempo “Black / Navy / Red” comes in an all-black leather and nubuck upper combination. Split hues of Red and Navy Blue adorn the “AIR” letterings on the sides, as well as the foam midsole underneath them. Red makes up the lateral sides, while Navy Blue on the medial.
Metallic Silver details appear on the pull tab and heel Swoosh. Pippen’s logo also made an appearance on the heel panel.
Expect an early 2022 release on this heat shoe. This is something you’d want to wear if you’re looking to get noticed.
