Not long ago Sneaker News showed you a Black/Metallic Gold colorway of the Nike Zoom Uptempo V Premium that was similar to the Black History Month releases that dropped this month. Here’s a look at an opposite effect of that colorway – one in a pure white upper and metallic gold trim. With the yin and the yang from these two releases, you can compare them more to the Zoom Kobe V ‘Big Stage’ Home and Away, although nobody is known to have won an NBA Championship in these. The Zoom Uptempo V Premium, as mentioned before, is a popular shoe among Chinese basketball players in (where else) China, and there certainly is something about this white and gold that emanates the Asian influence (perhaps it’s the speckled gold outsole that was also seen in the Air Jordan 2011 ‘Year of the Rabbit’). Check out the images below and let us know what you think. Thanks to fatboykickz for the pics.
