The Nike Air Total Max Uptempo is back in its original release colorway of white/blue for the first time since 2009. It looks clean, but the materials definitely could have been better, especially considering that these are the same price as the Nike LeBron 8 South Beach. For nostalgia’s sake, these might make the cut as one of the best retros of the year, but those who are meticulous with leather quality will be more than annoyed.
