Uptempo Italy

The Nike Air More Uptempo Gets Draped in the Italian Flag

Date: July 24 2018

The Azzurri not making the World Cup sent Italy (and my father) into a kind of perpetual mourning. Our family home, once a hive of activity, was somnolent. The blinds were drawn all day and the dog (Gigi) sat in the kennel for two and a half weeks. But it looks like we’re getting a consolation prize. 

Scottie Pippen’s Nike Air More Uptempo is getting the Italian treatment, with the iconic silhouette dressed in green, white and red. Let’s just pool all our national hope in Italian-American coach Mike D’Antoni — we’ve got Melo now so the Championship is ours (read: sarcasm).

We'll keep you posted with drop details.
