It’s late into the year and we’re still getting the lions share of Nike Air More Uptempo colorways. This upcoming Navy/White pair, unfortunately, looks to be a GS release.

Similar to the Navy/Gum pair we saw last week, this subtle iteration is simplistic in its two-tone approach. The nubuck base in navy is easily accented in white, both at the grandiose “AIR” branding the miniature Swoosh at the heel.

This GS release of the Nike Air More Uptempo lands in stores on October 14.

Scottie Pippen Says His Nike Air More Uptempo Stood Out More Than The Jordan 11

In 1996, Hall-of-Famer Scottie Pippen had a very unique signature sneaker, the Nike Air More Uptempo, which featured huge letters on both sides of the shoe. In conjunction with the Bulls’ success that year, Pippen’s shoe was extremely popular, much like his teammate Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 11. Pippen though, believes that his shoes stand out more than the Jordan 11.

In an interview with Nike, Pippen said in the Bulls’ locker room, the Nike Air More Uptempo stood out more than the Jordan 11 and the Shake Ndestrukt:

Looking back at that ’96 Bulls team, you had the Jordan 11 and the Shake Ndestrukt. What was the reaction to your shoe in the locker room?
I think mine stood out a little more just because of what it said. It was kind of the graffiti basketball shoe — making a statement in real big letters. So it stood on its own.

That year in the playoffs, a bunch of your teammates wore 11s. Were you influenced by them to wear that shoe as well?
Oh no, no. I mean, I did wear Jordans in some games, but I have always tried to focus on my brand or the shoe that I was wearing to make sure I stood by it and believed in it.

Pippen obviously has personal pride, which is why he is hyping up his own sneaker. And from a simplistic viewpoint, Pippen isn’t wrong since the lettering on his shoes do make the Nike Air More Uptempo stand out. But the Jordan 11 are one of the greats and stand out in more than just one way.

Nike Air More Uptempo “Bulls” Releasing in Men’s Sizing Soon

Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo “Suptempo” Coming This Year

2017 just got a lot more interesting. Following a major comeback last year, Scottie Pippen’s big branded basketball shoes are set to get a makeover from the most popular brand in streetwear. How so? The Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo “Suptempo” is set to release this year though official images still remain under wraps.

Sneaker News reports that the shoe will see ‘Sup’ replace that of ‘Air’ on the side-paneling, making for a bold wear and easy DM slide. Colorway information is yet to be revealed, but they also suggest that these will follow suit of previous Supreme x Nike collabs with multiple makeups on the way.

adidas Surprises Army All-American Football Players with Boost Heat and More Exclusive Gifts

photos & words // Ray P.:

Imagine being one of the top 100 High School Football players in the country having your dreams come true by being selected to play in the Army All-American game and the entire week leading up to the big Saturday was full of surprises from the hottest footwear brand of 2016. Yeah, talk about a feeling swaggy… ha!

As you know I’ve been in San Antonio working with the Army All-American Football players preparing for game day. From the outside looking in, it seems all business as these rising stars face off against each other on national TV before heading to College. However, the first rule of the game is to have fun and that’s exactly what adidas knows how to do. Each day after practice adidas invited the All-American players to a gifting suite for special surprises.

Instead of ruining the fun for you, browse ahead for an exclusive look into the experience as adidas offered the very best for the best athletes in the country:

Custom Varsity Jackets Commemorating All-American Status

There’s no doubt these boys play good, after all they are the top 100 in the country, but adidas made sure they looked good with a premium custom Varsity Jacket that wasn’t supposed to debut until 2018. Details include genuine leather sleeves, an extended seam with modern fit, and All-American detailing along the pockets. A one of a kind jacket for one of a kind players. Personalized dog tags finish off the gift package.

adidas NMD XR1 “ARMY”

Not only is this bowl game celebrating the young talent, but also the US Army. Offering their latest and greatest in the Primeknit and Boost combo, adidas rounded up an exclusive colorway of the NMD XR1 with special packaging. The shoes came inside personalized Army issued duffle bags which were given to the players immediately after practice was called.

adidas Harden Vol 1. “HOME”

adidas laced the young athletes with an early serving James Harden’s HOME colorway of his first signature sneaker which doesn’t debut until January 7th. Adding to the yet to be released shoes, adidas partnered with the San Antonio Spurs to gift them exclusive personalized NBA jerseys.

adidas Ultra Boost “TRIPLE BLACK”

Capping off an already incredible gifting experience, adidas saved the best for last as the most anticipated pair of Boosts of 2016 were served in elite fashion to the players. Triple Black Boosts were gone in an instant when released early December, so you can imagine the how the guys were left in awe when presented with their own pair accompanied by a custom dubre featuring their jersey number.

The US Army All-American Football game airs on January 7th at 1:00pm EST on NBC. Tune in as Nice Kicks will be present documenting views from the sidelines and behind the scenes.
