Brand: Nike

Model: Air More Uptempo Slides

Editor’s Notes: Nike saw the slide competition was getting stiff, so it decided to up the ante — or tempo, I should say — with another hybrid house shoe.

For its next order of slide business, Nike took its timeless Air More Uptempo silhouette and reworked it into a slip-on sandal.

Thus, the Air More Uptempo slides were born (I mean, what else would they be called?).

From the puffy graffiti "AIR" lettering to the visible Air units on the midsole, the Nike Air More Uptempo emulates the essence of the shoe launched into fame by former NBA star Scottie Pippen.

Much like the Swoosh's other in-house sandals, Nike's Air More Uptempo hosts sport and lifestyle sensibilities. Essentially, the classic basketball shoe becomes a fitting selection for sandal conversion.

Pippen's six NBA championships with the Bulls alone were a testament to the Air More Uptempo's on-court capabilities.

On the other hand, the sneakers still maintain a presence in sneakerhead's rotations to this day, which speaks to the Uptempo's prevailing off-court shoe status.

I mean, even Billie Eilish and IISE are fans.

Like Air Max 90-turned sandals, the Air More Uptempo is no different from its trainer counterparts.

Okay, maybe it's a bit different. But, more importantly, the spirit of the OG model is there, just in lace-less sandal form.

Whether you're repulsed or digging the vibes, Nike's Air More Uptempo slide is slipping into Nike stores and select retailers soon.

In the meantime, do you think ASICS will respond with a GEL KAYANO 14 sandal? After all, it seems to think slide sphere is an (ACTI)BREEZE.
