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 comes with a white leather upper, along with the classic graffiti styled big AIR logos on each side of the shoe. Additionally, touches of red can be seen around the AIR logos, on the Nike swooshes, and inside the air sole units that are visible.

  1. I’m not copping a pair of these. I don’t know about the big lettering on the side. It will suit some people, but I think I’ll take a pass on these.

  2. Hey Ahmad, great review of this new product from Nike. I’m way too uncool (and a bit old) to wear anything like that, but with two teenage boys I will be keeping a close eye on your site as their birthdays approach.

    Keep up the good work

    • Hello Joanne, thanks for the comment. Your boys would love to have these!!! Feel free to check back with my site for more updates!!!

  3. Wow! Those Nikes are interesting. I have a friend who will love these and will probably get a pair.He likes to buy them, wear them for awhile and then resell them. I will let him know about your website.
