Fans of the Air More Uptempo have been suffering through questionable tricolor and Supreme colorways, waiting for the clean OG builds to come back. Now officially dubbed the Air More Uptempo ’96, the ‘White/Varsity Red’ colorway is finally releasing.
Coming right on the heels of Nike unveiling limited edition Michael Jordan jerseys, releasing a classic Bulls sneaker next week is a good look. Originally worn by Scottie Pippen during the 1996 season, this shoe has just about the most Air you could give a Nike shoe — both literally and figuratively; the Air More Uptempo rides atop full-length Air and features huge “AIR” branding across the side panels.
The Nike Air More Uptempo ’96 ‘White/Varsity Red’ releases at Eastbay.com on May 24 for $160. (Tons of colorways are on sale now at Eastbay.com.)
Let us know if you’ll be grabbing a pair on release day.
