Nike Give the Air More Uptempo a GSW-Inspired Makeover
The Nike Air More Uptempo may be best associated with Bulls small forward Scottie Pippen, but the Swoosh have extended the 1990s basketball shoe’s lore beyond Chicago with this upcoming Golden State Warriors-inspired colourway. As it turns out, just about any palette works on the model – evident in the dozens of combinations on the market in recent years – and this white, blue and yellow take is among the strongest.
This Air More Uptempo retains multiple elements from the black and white original. Perforated panelling returns and is now clearly visible on the white leather upper, while the distinct ‘AIR’ branding is highlighted in blue with yellow trim. Other complementary elements like the tongue and heel counter follow the GSW theme in bright yellow – peep that glistening ‘jewel’ Swoosh! The midsoles are only half-filled with Air units on the heel of this pair as it’s a Grade School-sized example, but hopefully, an adult pair surfaces with forefoot pods intact.
Expect to see the Nike Air More Uptempo in GSW colours later this year.
