In a fitting 20th anniversary celebration, the Air More Uptempo now returns in the same colorway laced up by Pippen in the summer of ‘96.


The Nike Air More Uptempo is part of the Uptempo line, a series combining a speedy design with plenty of cushioning and support. Inspired by the oversized objects in pop art, graffiti, and an architectural project he’d previously worked on, lead Nike designer Wilson Smith worked ‘AIR’ into the Air More Uptempo’s upper to emphasize the in-your-face nature of arts and media at the time. The Nike Air More Uptempo was iconically worn by Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls during the 1996 NBA Finals. The shoe celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and returns in a patriotic Red, White, and Blue colorway with Gold accents.

The Nike Air More Uptempo is part of the Olympic Pack. Read more here.
