Originally released in 1996 during one of the more impactful seasons in NBA history, Scottie Pippen‘s union with the Nike Air More Uptempo throughout that hallmark year proved signature for both the Central Arkansas product and the Chicago Bulls.
Bolstering a league-best 72-10 regular season record that culminated in a fourth NBA championship, the Air More Uptempo represents not only those defining moments, but the style that encapsulated those times. Nike’s new “Pinstripe” collection, filled with basketball-focused models from said era, promotes a budding makeup of the Air More Uptempo as it was a crowning release that year.
Also pulling from the spirit that inspired the “Just Do It” collection, the pack doubles down on “AIR” through both its traditional vehicle and more modern transportation. Written across the paneling as it has been for 20 plus years, it’s now filled with smaller AIR script in an effort to drive home the pinstripe theme. The heel speaks that sentiment loudest.
The Nike Air More Uptempo “Pinstripe” Pack is set to release on August 11 for $160 at Nike.com.
