Yours truly and my boys spent a lot of our seventh grade year complaining that the Nike Air More Uptempo’s signature ‘AIR’ side panels, weren’t, in fact, filled with air. In retrospect, and especially as more pictures of the new Air Max a Lot hybrid, that shoe was actually quite hard to improve upon. The Nike Air Pippen was released a year later, and gives us an Air-filled upper look. They’re actually just plastic-y waves, but we’re still glad to have them back after a decade. Nike Sportswear retailers including Foot Locker will have these available on May 7th, 2010.
