The Air More Uptempo saw its debut in 1996, worn by NBA star Scottie Pippen and after a successful 17 years in the league, the sneaker silhouette became one of the most iconic shoes for the Nike brand. Last seen between the years of 2010 and 2012, the popular retro has seen a line of remakes and reimagined designs in the last six years – and this could be the best one yet.
Paying tribute to the cities Milan, Paris and London, Nike is set to release an EU City Pack. Produced in three bold colour-ways, the chunky basketball sneaker will see a green/white/red version for Milan, a watercolour rendition for London and black/gold look for Paris. Featuring the heel-to-toe Air unit and “AIR” branding that makes the shoe famous, this is expected to be a popular release.
According to Nike, the EU City Pack will be available from Footlocker’s online site from August 14 and in-stores from August 25, retailing for $160 USD. This latest release comes one year after the silhouette celebrated its 20-year anniversary. Check out each sneaker in detail below.
