Perhaps more than any other shoe, the Air More Uptempo captures the essence of ’90s basketball style. This bold and daring design, a blend of style and innovation, caused a huge stir when it debuted and continues to stand out today. One of the most revered hardwood silhouettes throughout the ’90s, the Nike Air More Uptempo continues to offer versatile tools derived from Scottie Pippen’s on-court endorsement.
The upper pairs coconut cream leather with a woven base layer. Covered washes of “Coconut Milk” appear throughout the upper. “AIR” lettering is present on the exaggerated tumbled leather. The mesh structure of the tongue ensures the breathability of the upper. The tonal combination is complemented by dark “Team Gold” accents on graffiti-style lettering, nylon laces, adjacent pull tabs, and the heel jeweled Swoosh. A full brown upper with speckled Sail midsole completes the upper design.
