Profile of Nike Air More Uptempo
Originally released in 1996 and made famous by basketball player Scottie Pippen at around the same time, the Nike Air More Uptempo returns to continue its on-court legacy. It still has the maximum-volume Air sole units that made it such a well-loved basketball sneaker in the past. Of course, it won’t be the Uptempo without its graffiti-inspired aesthetics.
Cushion. Plush comfort and effective impact protection are provided by the Nike Air More Uptempo through the three Air sole units in its midsole. True to its name, the cushioning units are filled with air up to the maximum level to maximize the benefits that they give.
Traction. The outsole of the Nike Air More Uptempo is made of a non-marking solid rubber that adds durability to the shoe. It features a segmented herringbone pattern, which is of course one of the most preferred tread pattern today because of its proven effectiveness especially in supporting swift multidirectional movements.
Length and Width. A lot of the comments about the Nike Air More Uptempo say that the shoe fits true to size. Hence, new buyers can safely go for their usual sizes when they order these Nike basketball shoes in-store or online.
Lockdown. The synthetic leather that the upper is made of significantly contributes to the one-to-one fit of the Nike Air More Uptempo. The fit can be adjusted further by using the traditional system that is integrated in its design. For ease in putting on and taking off the shoe, it has loops on the tongue and heel.
A large part of the upper is made of perforated synthetic leather to ensure ventilation. The tongue is made of mesh and the inside of the shoe is visibly padded to ensure the wearer’s experience of generous next-to-skin comfort.
The Nike Air More Uptempo is famously known for the large “AIR” call out on both sides, which perhaps is a testament to the shoe’s maximized use of Nike’s Air sole units to give the wearer the optimum level of impact protection and bounce. This aesthetic element draws inspiration from the oversized graffiti and popular art of the 90s.
The shoe is also covered in a number of Swoosh logos in various sizes and prominence. The iconic logo can be found on the toe, the rear part of the midsole, the heel counter, and the outsole.
