Nike Uptempo Shoes: All-Round Performance

Whilst guards and forwards already had their own shoes specially tailored to their needs in the form of the Nike Flight and Force, other positions were still left wanting the ideal basketball shoe. But even players from all positions wanted a shoe that gave them more than agility or strength. And that’s when the Nike Uptempo appeared on the scene – or rather, on the court. Inspired by Eric Avar’s Air Max Penny 1, the Uptempo became a true well-rounded sneaker: it was and still is super-comfortable, provides maximum stability, has top-class shock absorption, and is both dynamic and powerful while remaining agile and light.

Nike Uptempo retro releases – the success lives on

Among younger generations, the Nike Uptempo is primarily familiar due to the many retro models that the sporting goods manufacturer has been bringing out for some time, continuing the line’s former success. Incidentally, the Nike Uptempo models from the nineties as well as the retro versions have a particularly close association with former NBA pro and member of the 1992 Dream Team, Scottie Pippen. Nike released his Air More Uptempo signature shoe from 1996 as a retro version for the first time in 2016, instantly bringing in a large fan community. The next Scottie Pippen retro version of the Nike Uptempo came in summer 2017 – this time in an all-white style. Without doubt, this model is an absolute must-have for trainer and basketball fans and is ideal for a fresh summer style!
