Thanks to the retro basketball shoe trend that is completely dominating the sneaker game at the moment, old school silhouettes such as the Air Jordan 1 and the Air Penny are making a massive comeback. Another vintage model that's experiencing a meteoric rise in popularity is the Air More Uptempo, with colorways like the Nike Air More Uptempo "Coconut Milk" leading the charge. Famously worn by the legendary Scottie Pippen during the 1995-1996 NBA season, if you still don't have a pair in your rotation, you need to stop what you're and doing and check this one out.
Just like the original, this version features a full leather construction that's completely drenched in a creamy coconut milk color scheme. The Air More Uptempo's signature "AIR" branding hits the lateral and medial sidewalls, and each individual letter is outlined with a dash of team gold for added depth. Pull cords hit the tongue and back for a rugged aesthetic, while Nike Swooshes venture towards the toebox and heel. Underfoot, you'll find a chunky Air midsole, and this is finished off with a healthy portion of gum rubber which offers durable traction with every step.
Releasing this Summer 2023 in men's sizes, the Nike Air More Uptempo Coconut Milk will be available via Nike, the SNKRS app, and select retailers with a retail price of $180. Let us know what you think of this clean pair, and make sure you keep it locked at our Twitter andMobile App if you haven't already!
