One of the most distinctive basketball sneakers ever created, Nike’s Air More Uptempo was a staple of the late ’90s basketball scene and a footwear favorite both on and off the court. The hardwood icon — which turns 20 this year — has already released in several OG colorways, and will be accompanied by new and upcoming color schemes like the above version in white and Gym Red. Perhaps the boldest of the 2016 drops, the nostalgic design sports familiar features like three visible Air-Sole units and the sneaker’s iconic ‘Air’ branding in leather, resulting in a can’t-miss take on the Pippen-endorsed silhouette. Look for the Nike Air More Uptempo “Gym Red” to release tomorrow at Nike Sportswear retailers like Packer Shoes.
