UPDATE: We've just got our hands on some more shots of the Nike Air More Uptempo out in the wild and the big 'AIR' sporting sneaker looks as fresh as ever. Peep the pics above and then go out and cop from The Closet on September 3.
UPDATE: Sneakerheads Stateside have picked shelves dry of this clean take on the Pippen pro-model, but collectors across the pond now have their chance to add this gum-sole Uptempo to their arsenal.
The Air More Uptempo 'White/Gum' will be available through Nike.com and select Nike Sportswear stockists from August 6.
The reissue of the Air More Uptempo has intersected the popular sneaker trends of uncommon retro ball shoes and brazen branding and has been received crazy well as a result. Add to that the über hyped Atlanta Olympics release, and you’ve got the hot hands effect in a sneaker. The latest (and maybe last for a while) to hit stores is this ‘White/Gum’ option that juxtaposes aggressive branding with a calming white. Gum then sticks the shoe to the ground and is accented with a cheeky Swoosh on the lateral heel.
The Nike Air More Uptempo is available now, in store only, from Kith NYC.
