The Nike Air More Uptempo was one of Nike Basketball’s iconic creations of the mid-90s thanks to that bold ‘AIR’ panel construction that called out the technology used in the model’s midsole and a number of awesome color combinations championed by Scottie Pippen. While the “Olympic” colorway returned earlier this year in honor of the 20th anniversary of the ’96 Dream Team, the Swoosh is still tinkering with lifestyle-inspired aesthetics from White/Gum to the latest offering: a winter-ready Black/Grey combination headed to retail shelves in the near future.
Here the ‘AIR’ still manages to stand out thanks to Dark Grey piping on a simple black base while speckled laces match the pull tab for an added dimension. The visible air unit showcased throughout the midsole retains a simple matching black shade while that signature 90s gel Swoosh returns to the heel instead of any Pippen PE branding like that found on the recently retro’d “Olympic” colorway. What do you think of this upcoming offering?
