Nike Basketball and Kith have something special planned for this Wednesday’s release of the iconic Nike Air More Uptempo “Olympic”. The pair stands as one of the boldest silhouettes ever created by the Swoosh thanks to the oversized ‘Air’ branding that consumes the entirety of the upper and has Scottie Pippen to thank for championing the “Olympic” colorway during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Now, 20 years later, we’re getting another retro this Wednesday, July 20th. That’s not all. The folks over at Kith have partnered with Nike to host an exclusive in-store event at Kith Brooklyn where Scottie Pippen will be in attendance to talk about his Olympic memories, his favorite Nike signature, and much more. The first 48 customers to purchase the Nike Air More Uptempo in-store at either Kith Brooklyn or Kith Manhattan will receive a ticket to the event on Saturday, July 23rd as well as a special edition Air More Uptempo hat. Start lining up because you won’t want to miss out on seeing Scottie Pippen in-person at Kith Brooklyn this Saturday.
