Between the Air Max Uptempo and Air Max 95, 1995 was a banner year for the Swoosh Brand’s most recognizable cushioning technology. The Uptempo has been revitalized this year with both classic and new colorways, and now the latest pair to appear is this essential combo of black and volt. The upper presents a stately combination of smooth black nubuck and tumbled black leather, all of which is accented by pops of neon green detailing on the eyestays, heel badge, and around the patent leather Swoosh. Down below, a black midsole encases a sizeable volt-colored Air Max cushioning system, one that offered the most Air ever in a pair of Nike shoes when the model debuted back in ’95. Once worn by luminaries like Scottie Pippen and Kevin Garnett on the NBA hardwood, it’s now an eye-catching lifestyle design, and you can expect this new makeup to release later this summer for $150 USD at Foot Lockerand other Swoosh Brand stockists.
