The Air More Uptempo was a staple of the Nike basketball lineup in the 1990s and now the company is releasing a slide version of the shoe.
Wilson Smith created the More Uptempo and released it in 1996. Scottie Pippen helped make the Air Jordan I famous worldwide, and the shoe’s huge “AIR” lettering on the sides ensured that it would be seen immediately. Nike introduced the Air More Uptempo Slide, a sneaker that pays homage to the original using similar construction and design elements. The nubuck strap upper has the iconic “AIR” branding in black with a white outline, a reference to the original Uptempo hue.
Check out this first glimpse at the original black and white Nike Air More Uptempo Slide. Look for them available on Nike.com and at select retailers in the coming weeks. Follow Female Sneakerhead to learn more as it becomes available.
