Back in ’96 the Air More Uptempo made it’s debut on the Olympic floors of Atlanta. Fast forward 20 years later & here we are still admiring the classic basketball sneaker. Known for it’s oversized ‘AIR’ font embroidered on both sides of the sneaker, the More Uptempo also symbolizes a shift in hip hop & street culture. Not just a sneaker of its time but also a staple of when hip hop came into fruition. Flooding the majority of radio stations, alley ways & sidewalks became galleries of infinite graffiti murals.
In honor of this special release KITH NYC has partnered up with NIKE to host a special release event to commemorate the sneaker. As KITH always does, a special release event is always in the works. KITH is offering the first 96 customers who purchase a pair will receive a limited edition “Air More Uptempo” hat long with a ticket to an exclusive event.
That ticket will grant access for the first 96 customers to an In-Store sit down on July 23rd with none other than Scottie Pippen himself. Pippen will then discuss his all time favorite Olympic memories, favorite sneakers, & all things Uptempo. So if you’re in the New York area, swing by KITH to get more details on the release date of the More Uptempo as well as seeing Mr. Pippen himself.
