Detailed look at the Nike Air More Uptempo “Renowned Rhythm”
Few eras of NBA basketball can compare to the ultra-competitive showdowns that went down in the 90s, and during this time period, legends like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen instantly became idolized for their skills and fashion sensibilities. For Pippen, the NikeAir More Uptempo was a consistent go-to for the two-way forward, and it’s now being highlighted by the Swoosh once again through a new colorway entitled the “Renowned Rhythm” — a namesake procured and inspired by #33’s capabilities of playing with both aggression and grace.
The color execution on these retro basketball kicks are emblematic of the Chicago Bulls — the very franchise that Pippen won six championships with. A pristine theme is shown through white perforated leathers and to form the side paneling as well as the nylon tongues. Oversized AIR lettering — a design element signature to this silhouette — also comes primarily presented in white, while its borders offset with “Varsity Red”. More “Varsity Red” hits disperse to the embroidered checks that are lie on the tongues and forefoot, in addition to the puffed up Swooshes on the heels.
Bottoms bring in more of the same elements as its blocky midsole is backdropped in white, while the Swooshes and visible Air units arrive painted in the same accenting hue as its upper half.
If you’re thinking of adding these to your collection, the pair will be releasing via Nike SNKRS on April 15, 2021 for $160 USD.
