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 sneaker features the Chicago Bulls signature colors; Black, Red, and White. Leather material is applied to the upper of the shoe. Additionally, on the “AIR” logo, you will notice the pinstripe details. It also comes with a white midsole, and air cushioning featured in red. Finally, you will notice the 96 stickers placed on the insoles.
The release date is just around the corner. They are releasing August 11th, for $160.00. This would make a great addition to the sneaker collection.
