Nike has led us into an Uptempo revival lately. First up was the ripest fruit on the family tree, the Air More Uptempo, but now we’re getting a closer look at some of the lesser-known, yet equally sweet fruit. The Air Max Uptempo 97 is all about that crazy midsole, those rounded triangular midsole pods, the wavy extended air unit – there’s a lot going on down there. The black upper keeps it low-key, with some similar elements built in when you look up close.
The Nike Air Max Uptempo 97 ‘Black/White’ will be available December 6 from select stockists, including online from Overkill.
