The Nike Air More Uptempo basketball shoe is back just in time for the 2012 Olympic Games. Whether you are on a team or just playing pickup games, the Nike Air More Uptempo’s revamped design will keep you balling in style.
Scottie Pippen originally made this shoe famous during the second Chicago Bulls three-peat in 1996. Between its nubuck material and oversized AIR lettering, the More Uptempo caught people’s eye in the late nineties. Now, the model is back, restored and refreshed with Olympic fashion.
Modified especially for the 2012 Summer Olympics, the More Uptempo has quickly become many basketball players’ dream shoe. The redesigned Uptempo features the AIR text, red trim, and a 360-degree Nike Air Unit, which reduces the force of impact on the feet through compression. The shoe is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also lightweight, versatile and durable.
The original Nike Air More Uptempo kicks come in navy blue with white AIR lettering. The revised edition is available for $160 at a local retailer.
