Originally part of an overseas exclusive ‘Asia Hoop Pack’, this Nike Air More Uptempo is finally re-releasing in Men’s sizes Stateside.
I don’t believe Scottie Pippen ever wore this exact colorway on-court — I could be wrong — but the colorway was definitely inspired by Pippen and his tenure as a Chicago Bull.
This colorway was originally released in 2005 as an overseas exclusive and quickly became a grail among those that collect the Nike Air More Uptempo. I’m a huge fan of the Air More Uptempo, but this colorway has never been a favorite of mine. For some reason I feel that with this loud design, the color blocking needs to be more subtle. These dropped Stateside last year but they were only available in GS (kids) sizes. Now we’re getting the Retro this Spring in Men’s sizes for a retail price of $160.
The release date is tentatively scheduled for April 7. However, online reseller KixSquare has pairs in-hand now and will be shipping soon.
