Not long ago, the Nike Air More Uptempo was the chased shoe in sneaker culture. OG pairs proved tough to track down circa 2015 and 2016 with a Supreme collab also adding to the intrigue of the Pippen pair.
By 2018, it was assumed the loud shoe had run its course on the retro circuit. Sure, it was a classic and always had been, but too many colorways watered down the appetite for the wearer.
A surprise of sorts, the More Uptempo is back in a familiar White/Red colorway. Some may think these are an original. Well, they’re not. In actuality, the outline color blocking references that of the OG’s takedown — the Air Much Uptempo — while the palette presented didn’t touch the More Uptempo until its first retro run back in 2006.
Underrated then, will they be beloved now? That’s for you to decide as pairs pop at Feature and other NSW accounts this Thursday.
