A number of the made-famous-by-Scottie Pippen Uptempo silhouettes have returned to action this year and last, and next up to join that bunch is the Air Max Uptempo 97. Straight from 1997, this retro basketball creation is set to sport a stately combination of white, black, and navy, with its signature “Air” logo embroidered in cursive as well as its Jordan 6-like heel tab. Back for the first time since 2017’s “University Blue” Pack that included a number of 90’s hoop models, this shoe’s return should excite appreciators of this chunky and vintage basketball aesthetic. Fan of this old-school hoops shoe? Pairs are available now at Footaction and Footlocker.
