Following earlier drops in “Black,” “Gym Red” and “White/Gum,” Nike is continuing the revival of its archetypal ’90s basketball sneaker, the Air More Uptempo, with a Scottie Pippen-inspired iteration.
The new shoes relive the summer of 1996 in which basketball legend Scottie Pippen led the nation on the hardwood in a pair in this colorway. The iconic shoe, designed by Wilson Smith, remains as patriotic as it gets with classic tones igniting the bold silhouette.
It comes complete with Pippen’s number 8 stitched on the heel, and the standard three visible Air sole units and the iconic, head-turning “Air” branding on the side.
The Swoosh also recently brought back the Match Classic with beautiful tan brogue details.
