The Nike Air More Uptempo History
The Nike Air More Uptempo (worn by Scottie Pippen) was originally released back in 1996, created by Wilson Smith. The big “AIR” logo located on the side of each shoe was an idea that Smith took from a page from The World Of Graffiti and Pop Art. It also features an abundant cushioning and lockdown support. Back in 1996, the sneaker was showcased alongside the Air Jordan 11 (worn by Michael Jordan), and the Nike Air Shake NDestrukts (worn by Dennis Rodman). Scottie has discussed that the Nike Air More Uptempo stood out above both MJ’s and Dennis Rodman’s sneakers, calling it the “graffiti basketball shoe”. The original price for the sneaker was $140.00.
Features Of The Shoe
This shoe features the Georgetown Hoyas signature colorway. The leather upper consists of cool grey, while the classic “AIR” logo is colored in navy blue. Finally, navy blue can be seen on the outsoles, and there a few touches of white found throughout the shoe.
Come August the 30th, these will be available for you. Retail pricing is set at $160.00. You wouldn’t want to miss out on these, especially if you are enrolled at Georgetown.
