A beloved basketball staple of the 1990s, the Nike Air More Uptempo has been on the forefront of the brand’s retro hoops efforts. Recently, the Scottie Pippen-associated design appeared in a new “Photon Dust” and “Metallic Silver” makeover.

Cushioned with a modified Air Max solution, the sneaker maintains the same bold DNA that made it iconic 27 years ago for its latest style. Large “AIR” branding covers the sides of the upper and features a simple “White” and “Black” finish. The remainder of the shoe favors a greyscale arrangement, with the bottom of the Uptempo design rounding out the look in an understated silver hue. The visible Air bubbles abandon every single tone found on the rest of the shoe, introducing a faint cream color that complements the upper and sole unit.

No confirmed nike.com release date has been shared by the brand, but that’s likely to change soon. While you wait for details, enjoy official images of the pair ahead.

In related sneaker news, the Air Jordan 2 Low “Cherrywood” is expected to launch in the summer.
