Nike Zoom Uptempo V – Tonal Black + White
Jason Kidd’s bug-eyed mid-’90s Nike Basketball signatures are making an impact on the holiday season, but even with four recent Zoom Flight 95 PEs, will these two new colorways of its successor ever make it stateside? The Nike Zoom Uptempo V is a Japanese favorite, where many exclusive editions have released over the years for this groundbreaking roundball sneaker with the distinctive turf-trainer-like elements. Black and white pair feature a mix of grainy leather and hologram-glimmering patent, and the trademark midsole jewels are given a less iridescent treatment. Stick with Sneaker News to see if they make it across the Pacific and let us know where these rank among the recent J-Kidd surge.
