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.

This sneaker features the Chicago Bulls signature colors; Black, Red, and White. Leather material is applied to the upper of the shoe.

  1. WOW! All I can say is WOW.

    Sure these are the Chicago Bulls colors, but they’re also the Vancouver Stealth lacrosse team colors! My son would KILL for these as they’d match his lacrosse gear and jerseys.

    Looks like the smallest size is a 6 (that I can see). He’s a 5 right now, so this might make a killer gift for next year’s lacrosse season! Absolute killer gift…

    • Hello Dave, thanks for the comment. Sorry, but the lowest size is a 8 since they are only available in men’s sizes only. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content!!!

  2. These are a cool pair of kicks, thanks a lot for the info. I think I will grab myself a pair soon.

  3. I know a few people that would love to add this pair to their collection. I’ll be sure to let them know about your article, they love the Chicago Bulls!

  4. Most of the time i tend to like the more simple and clean look when it comes to shoes, but I have to say I do dig the design on these. The red is nice and doesn’t overpower the shoe. How is the comfort on these?

    • Hello Tony, thanks for the comment. The Nike Air More Uptempo is the perfect fit with a lot of comfort. I know since I own a couple of pair myself. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker news!!!

  5. Hi Ahmad.
    I never knew the history behind Nike. The Godess of Victory. Blue Ribbon just sounds so boring in comparison to Nike, just do it!
    The shoes are so gorgeous!
    Thank you

  6. that’s a good looking pair of shoes! scottie pippen was always one of my favorite basketball players as a kid and that bulls team was insane! thanks for the info, i might be getting me a pair of these.

  7. These shoes look absolutely fantastic Ahmad, even though they look more like Miami Heat colors than any hint of Orlando Magic colors! Thanks for another great post Mr. Consistent!
