The success of the Uptempo is owed to basketball legend, Scottie Pippen. 1996 is when the Uptempo made its debut with an ad of Pippen large and in charge rocking them. During this time there were many other popular sneakers out but the Uptempo was special. The oversized AIR logo stood out. The Uptempo is a bold and over built sneaker, Scottie Pippen referred to it as the “graffiti basketball shoe”. I am excited about the comeback of the Air More Uptempo. The more recently popular shoes nowadays are simple, clean and play it safe but the Uptempo is fearless.
Featuring premium leather and nubuck upper, full-length Air Max cushion system (hence the name Air More), support straps for midfoot support, lace lock system, and gradient white/Grey/Black color way.
