When it first released back in 1995, Nike billed the Air Max Uptempo 95 as “the most Air cushioning we’ve ever put into a sole.” This bouncy, bulbous, and eye-catching style made the Uptempo 95 wildly popular both on and off the basketball court, and even though its top billing in the Air department has since been eclipsed by other sneakers like the Air Max 720, it’s still an important part of Swoosh Hoops heritage. Now, it’s set to return to market in a summer-ready “Blue Fury” colorway. A classic white leather upper provides the base, while light blue patent leather overlays and a large patent leather Swoosh surrounded by white embroidery add some premium flair. There’s plenty of compelling little details here as well, with blue used for the “AIR” branding on the lace overlays, and a small gold swoosh peeking out from under one of the tongue’s elastic straps. Down below, a white midsole with a gold heel Swoosh encases gold Air Max cushioning units, and the look is completed by a blue outsole. Check out a full set of official images below, and look for these Uptempo 95s to release on Nike.com and at select Nike Basketball stockists on May 17th for $150 USD.
