What Is Nike???

Nike is a multinational corporation that is the world largest supplier of athlete shoes and major manufacturer of sports equipment. It was founded in 1964, by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight. The company was first known as Blue Ribbon Sports, but the name was changed to Nike Inc. in 1971.In Mythology, Nike is the name of the Greek Goddess Of Victory. Nike markets many products such as Nike Golf, Nike Pro, Nike+, Air Jordan, Nike Blazers, Air Force 1, Nike Dunk, Air Max, Foamposite, Nike SB, and many more. Nike also operates many retail stores worldwide. Additionally, the company sponsors many high profile athletes and sport teams all around the world. You may also be familiar with the infamous Nike trademarks: “Just Do It” and the swoosh logo.

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.

Release Date

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.

  1. My son loves shoes! Nike is one of his favorites. He is used to standing in line overnight just to get the new shoes before they “supposedly” run out. I get it, I love shoes too, just not that much.
    Your article was easy to read and understand. Having the visual of the shoe, made it easy for people to see what you talking about. I liked the layout of your page. Good work! Much success and many blessings to you.

    • Hello Lanetta, thanks for the comment. I used to stand in line for the sneakers as well, but when I was unable to get a pair, I call it quits. I have decided to purchase my sneakers online for now on. Feel free to always check back with my site for more sneaker news!!

    Thanks for sharing the latest information on Nike shoes.

  4. Wow, these sneakers sure make a statement! I actually like the color scheme. It’s memorable and pretty cool but not over the top. I’ve never been one for eye-boggling footwear but I like these because they are subtle yet make a statement.

  5. This shoes are a big winner. Just the name Hoyas says it all. I have been a Hoya nut going back to Coach John Thompson II, Sleepy Floyd, Charles Smith III, Motumbo, Mourning, and Iverson. Georgetown is the citadel of Afro American basketball. They are hopefully on the rise again with new Coach Patrick Ewing, the best Hoya basketball player of all time. I would love to snag a pair in the future. Great article continue with your blog sir. Also, Pippen knows better. He knows deep down that Air Jordan 11’s will always top his signature shoes!!
