Packing chunk and funk in equal measure, Nike’s More Uptempo 96 commands attention whether it’s dipped in black and white, popping with pearlescent branding, or released in monochromatic easy-on-the-eyes nudey pink (colourway name yet to be confirmed). The model’s shoe-consuming Air branding is bordered by white, a refined accent that’s mirrored on the toe’s small Swoosh as well as a larger pearl-white logo on the heel. Clear Air units through the sole round out the loud but loveable design.
This yet-to-be-named colourway is set to launch on Nike+, Nike Online and at select stores through China, Japan and Europe on July 15. North American-based Uptempo fans will need to wait until September.
