Nike's 'Knicks' Uptempos Throw Shade At Patrick Ewing

Nike have used the Air More Uptempo to remind us of a moment Patrick Ewing would rather forget. The insole of the shoe bears the silhouette of Pippen (who claimed the Uptempo as his own) performing a monstrous dunk over Ewing. In the game, Ewing was knocked to the hardwood; Pippen then literally walked over the top of him – laughing, no less – and proceeded to trash talk Spike Lee.



It’s the stuff of basketball history, and Nike are reviving it with a killer slight made all the more hilarious by their choice of colourway – a ‘Knicks’ make-up mocks the posterisation using Ewing’s own team colours. Brutal!
