The open-toed footwear game has been getting all the more competitive over the last few years, but Nike may have one of the more anticipated arrivals up their sleeve for the warmer Summer 2023 months. The Air More Uptempo Slide, an obvious take-down from Scottie Pippen’s iconic model from 1996, has been equally stunning as the parent model, now even more daring with this bold red application.
No mystery to the OG, this red/black/white colorway has been a regular sighting for the Air More Uptempo given its adjacent nature to classic Chicago Bulls colors. Nike Basketball fans will know that these were in fact an Asia exclusive release way back in 2005 as part of the “Hoop Pack“, but has since become a mainstay in the product line, dropping as recently as summer 2021.
A firm release date or an MSRP for any of the Slide drops has yet to surface, so stay tuned for updates and enjoy this first look below.
