The Making Of The Nike Air More Uptempo
Nike continues it's Summer of Basketball celebration with a look at the Air More Uptempo. Retro'd earlier this month in a classic Team USA colourway, Nike take us back to the drawing boards and show us how lead designer Wilson Smith took branding to new heights with the bold 'AIR' lettering. Designed for the vertical player who needed the lockdown and plenty of cushioning, it was only fitting that the More Uptempo became Scottie Pippen's shoe of choice at the '96 Olympics. Check out the shoe below along with rare development sketches, and see more at Nike Inc.
