Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo History
Famous NYC clothing brand and skateboarding shop first joined forces with the global giant Nike in the year 2002. Since then, their collaborations have been among the most sought-after.
Previously, Supreme worked on tried-and-true Nike creations like the Air Jordan 1, Foamposite 1 and Air Force 1. Their take on these iconic models proved worthwhile as they were indeed able to elevate the look of these shoes to a whole new level. This year, they decided to recreate the renowned 1996 Nike Air More Uptempo.
Originally designed by Wilson Smith, this hoop shoe’s anti-subtle silhouette drew inspiration from the mid-90’s architecture, graffiti and pop-up art. The massive “Air” emblazoned on the side of the shoe attracted the likes of NBA Chicago Bulls player Scottie Pippen who proved that bigger is truly better.
Fast forward to January 2017, rumors about the Uptempo being recreated surfaced. The hype intensified after Nike fans saw this talked-about model on the feet of soccer star Neymar as well as Phoenix Suns b-ball player Derrick Jones Jr. After the numerous teasers, the release date, April 27, came and the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo sold out instantly.
Unlike their previous work, this one gained mixed results. Staying true to the original’s loud design, some thought this iteration did not reflect the same level of creativity Supreme put on their other iterations. Regardless, many loyal supporters of this retro sneaker remain pleased despite the varying opinions.
Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo Style
Loud, big and daring, the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo just screams for attention. The red and metallic gold colorways definitely are head turners if matched with the right outfit. Those who wish to keep it subtle can steer clear of the vibrant red and gold and pick the black pair. Versatile and clean, this can be easily paired with anything in your closet including jeans, shorts and joggers.
Fit & Sizing
Basketball-shoe inspired, the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo, with an upper made with either synthetic leather or a mix of nubuck and synthetic, ensures to provide adequate support. Commonly fitting true to size, this shoe is available in men’s sizes 6-16.
Recognized instantly for the word “Supreme” embellished around the shoe’s upper, this collab is also popular for the full-length, visible air bubble embedded on the Subtempo’s midsole. The midsole has four windows on the side and one on the heel. Not only is this made to make the shoe more attractive, it also offers adequate cushioning and lockdown support.
- Mesh tongue and perforations on the upper improve the shoe’s breathability.
- The “Swoosh” logo is embroidered in contrasting color on the toe cap, tongue and heel.
- The fit is enhanced with the addition of the elastic straps and lacing system. This includes rope laces. Extra pair of white laces with aglets that show “World Famous” is also provided.
- Jewelled “Swoosh” logo can be seen on its lateral and medial side.
- The “Swoosh” can also be found on the undersole. One big one in the middle and a small one on the heel with the “Air” callout.
- The left foot displays “SUP” on the lateral side and “EME” on the medial side. The reverse can be seen on the right foot. Both show the “R” on the heel just below the “Swoosh” insignia.
- The Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo comes with a removable and well-cushioned Ortholite insole. This is added for better comfort. Moisture is also wicked away, thereby reducing shoe odor.
