Photos have recently surfaced of the Nike Zoom Uptempo V in a Premum make-up. The Uptempo V was originally the Air Zoom Flight V when it released in 1997 as a signature shoe for Jason Kidd. Now, due to Kidd’s move to Peak Footwear, the shoe has been renamed and stripped of its “Kidd” branding. Fortunately the silhouette remains and has made a few retro appearances in the past year.
This latest iteration utilizes premium black leather, a white lateral sidewall, and copper accenting. As always, the “bug eye” is the focal point of the shoe and the tinge of copper does not dissapoint. Flip the post for a look at the medial side and the outsole.
