The Air More Uptempo OG, first released in 1996, is set to make a comeback in 2023. This iconic shoe, designed by Wilson Smith, was worn by NBA player Scottie Pippen and became a staple in the '90s basketball shoe culture. The shoe features the word "AIR" prominently across the side, a nod to the shoe's visible air-cushioning technology.
Sneaker collectors have been eagerly awaiting the return of the Air More Uptempo OG. The shoe will be returning in its original colorway with a release date expected for the holiday season of 2023. The website also states that the shoe will feature the same materials and construction as the original release, making it a true retro release. The Air More Uptempo OG's return is not only exciting for sneakerheads, but also for fans of '90s fashion and pop culture. The shoe was a staple in the hip-hop and streetwear scene of the time and its comeback is sure to spark a resurgence in the nostalgia for that era.
The Nike Air More Uptempo OG is set to return in the coming months via select retailers and the Nike SNKRS app at a retail price of $160. For the latest sneaker news and release information, connect with us on Twitter or Instagram.
