The Nike Air Total Max Uptempo Black/Red is back for the first time since 2009. Though this isn’t an OG colorway, it uses the same color blocking in the upper as the original releases and that’s good enough for us. With a classic color scheme and an iconic look, these look to fit those who remember them from 1997, Uptempo fans, and chunky shoe lovers alike.
