The classic Nike Air More Uptempo Olympic will be making a return once again this year, as the silhouette celebrates its 20th anniversary and the 2016 Summer Games in Rio.
Originally seen on Scottie Pippen during the 1996 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain with the historic “Dream Team,” the iconic basketball sneaker essentially stays true to its OG counterpart. Midnight navy and white consists as its overall palette, while subtle contrasting hits of red adorn the tongue to round out the USA theme.
Priced at $160, you can find this standout 2016 variation at select Nike retailers on July 20th.
I’ve always liked this model ever since I saw Scottie rock the pair. I’m a fan of that enlarged branding, plus the design is just appealing in my view. It’s nice to see that this colorway will be offered again.
