Nike, the reigning king of sneaker culture, has once again flexed its iconic Air More Uptempo silhouette. This time, the legendary sneaker is donning its famous red, white, and blue colorway to commemorate the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games. This sixth installment of the Air More Uptempo “Olympic” edition is set to make a grand entrance next Fall season.
But that’s not all, folks! Nike has more Olympic-themed heat in store for us. Alongside the Air More Uptempo, the Air Jordan 6 “Olympic” is also rumored to be making a triumphant return. This high-top beauty, with its tumbled leather and nubuck construction, first graced the hardwood alongside basketball legend Scottie Pippen in the 1996 Summer Olympics. Can you believe it’s been over 27 years? Talk about a classic!
Now, let’s dive into the details of the Air More Uptempo “Olympic” edition. With a stunning “Midnight Navy” base, crisp white detailing takes center stage on the enlarged “Air” lettering adorning the sidewalls. And let’s not forget the pops of “University Red” on the tongue tab and the swoosh logos decorating the outsole. The vamp and heel’s jewel swooshes perfectly match the overall color scheme, adding an extra touch of sophistication.
Sneakerheads, mark your calendars! The highly anticipated Nike Air More Uptempo “Olympic” is set to drop as part of the Fall Collection in 2024. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered in the meantime. Check out these snapshots from the 2020 release as we eagerly await the first-look imagery of this upcoming masterpiece.
