This year’s Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Collection will feature a classic Nike basketball silhouette in the form of the Nike Air More Uptempo, designed by Brody Miller. Miller, an aspiring comic book artist fighting complex brain malformation, drew inspiration for his bright blue Uptempos from his alter ego, Generator Man. The letters “BPM” replace the typical “Air” moniker seen on the upper in Miller’s design, standing for both Miller’s initials and “beats per minute.” The design also features lightning bolts and vibrant yellow and red accents befitting of a superhero, with a glow-in-the-dark outsole that reveals the phrase “BE STRONG.” Fans of Brody’s super-charged Uptempos can look for them to release on November 18th in the SNKRS app, with all proceeds going to benefit OHSU Doernbecher. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for more details as they become available.
