The 1990s were a pivotal period for Nike and its basketball division, as many of the most iconic designs were born during this era. Nike is bringing back a classic basketball shoe from the mid-1990s: the Air Total Max Uptempo — a shoe that debuted in 1997 and is often seen on the feet of NBA legends like Reggie Miller, Vince and Vince. Carter and David “Admiral” Robinson.
Acclaimed over time for its tank-like durability and comfortable Air cushioning, the shoe still stands out from the rest of Nike’s retro basketball portfolio today. The Uptempo collection was launched around 1995, the most famous of which was the 1996 Air More Uptempo. However, with the return of its successor, the Air Total Max Uptempo, later this year, sneaker fans old and new can reassess whether it’s properly respected or still undervalued.
After releasing the Celtics’ signature “White/Green” colorway, Nike has brought new life to this OG version with a “White/Midnight Navy” colorway. In this article, let’s explore these unique sneakers with Storepc.
The two-tone part is a fully accurate reproduction of the 24-year-old OG version. Its upper construction is made of premium suede material with wavy texture on the sides and midsole. All these details are covered in stark white.
Highlights of the ‘Midnight Navy’ colorway are in details such as the Swooshes logo, tongue overlay, heel tab, ‘AIR’ shape on the lower heel, and a thin overlay that starts at the forefoot and extends to the collar. The see-through Air sole design below, combined with the beautiful navy blue outsole and white midsole, are details that help complete the shoe’s aesthetic.
