Catching Big A-I-R in the Nike Air More Uptempo ’96

Let’s jump back to the ’96 Olympics in Atlanta, GA. Dream Team II was giving nightmares to their competition, easily winning the gold medal. Only four people on that stacked team averaged double-digit points. One of them was Scottie Pippin. The Hall of Fame do-everything superstar debuted the Nike Air More Uptempo ’96 that summer. The brash AIR lettering on the upper made the sneaker an instant favorite, as it remains to this day. Here in the “Baroque Brown” edition, the Uptempos make use of real and synthetic leathers, embroidered Swoosh logos and multiple Air units. Pip even wore these to win the ’96 NBA title. He couldn’t have done more while wearing the Air More Uptempos.
