Iconic designer, Wilson Smith III once said when describing the ethos of the Nike Air More Uptempo, "I think generally, the mid ‘90s were just a bigger-than-life time." And when the silhouette bursted onto the scene in 1996, the bold and dynamic, AIR that overlays the upper on the lateral and medial walls were the main attraction that drew fans in. Sitting on top of a full length air unit in the midsole with window cutouts, the colorways over time have become as bold as the model itself.
From various reincarnations of the Air More Uptempo from Supreme, and in-house at Nike and its reach has been felt across Cactus Plant Flea Market and the Air Force 1 – and even after all of those fun takes, the model can still return to simplistic sophistication. As evident by this crisp white beauty with subtle hits of Midnight Navy constructing the Swooshes at the toe, heel and midsole.
Release of this Air More Uptempo is slated for May 17th on SNKRS and at select Nike Sportswear retailers.
Update: The Air More Uptempo will now release in this colorway on June 7th.
