Nike is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Air More Uptempo in a big way: after a surprise release earlier this month, the Swoosh have announced an April 21 re-up on the shoe’s OG black-and-white colorway, which will retail for $160 USD. The basketball shoes are as synonymous with Scottie Pippen as they are with the oversized “AIR” branding that graces the sides of its upper.

The news of the OG’s re-release comes amid rumors that the Beaverton sports titan will be re-releasing the silhouette’s “Chicago Bulls” and “Olympic” renditions in July—that is, exactly 20 years after Pippen canonized the kicks with a gold medal-worthy performance at 1996’s Summer Games in Atlanta.

Will summer 2016 mark the resurgence of the throwback Pippens? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
