UPDATE: We’d like to welcome Nike’s ‘University Blue’ Air More Uptempo into the world, as it takes its first steps on the shop floor at a retailer near you. The baby blue shoe has finally had its global drop and can be picked up now from select stockists, including online from Rise.
Nike’s Air More Uptempo ‘University Blue’ is proving a slippery character. When Nike dropped a whole pack of baby blue Uptempos early this year, it left us all wishing the chunky spelled-out sneaker had been included. Then the internet started giving up a few flicks of the UNC-coloured retro while rumours flew around the webosphere – one such rumour suggested that Foot Locker would launch the shoe on August 8. The day came and went with little fanfare, but it seems a few pairs made their way onto the ‘Bay. Luckily for all those still holding out for a taste, there are more on the way – don’t go feeding those resellers just yet.
The Nike Air More Uptempo ‘University Blue’ will be available from September 1 at select stockists.
