With its unique aesthetic of “AIR” spelled on the sides and being seen on the feet of Scottie Pippen ( back when he had some sense), became and remained one of the most popular silhouettes from the “Golden Era” of NIke Basketball. The popularity it still enjoys today speaks to the staying power of the Wilson Smith-designed classic.
The colourway of the More Uptempo sports a perforated sail leather upper pink underlaid letters on the lateral and medial sides. Respective sail and pink pull tabs along with a jewelled rear heel Swoosh completes an upper which sits atop a two-tone sail and bone midsole that houses a visible full-length Air Max unit.
This colourway of the NIke Air More Uptempo is planned to make its debut sometime over the course of the coming months at nike.com and select retail establishments; they will carry a 170 USD sticker price.
