Ultra premium leather covers the upper of the Air More Uptempo, a shoe which couldn’t be more old-school. That over-sized lettering across the sidewall is a homage to 90s era footwear which often features in-your-face styling.
That said, this shoe is surprisingly low-key thanks to the rich shade of obsidian. Hits of white are utilised for the ‘AIR’ insignia which covers the sidewall but even the midsole remains tonal underfoot.
All the conventional details feature including a heel-to-toe Air Unit as well as an elasticated lacing system that keeps the foot locked in place. Finally, OG Nike branding is stamped across the tongue.
