Originally released in 1996, and last seen in 2020, the Nike Air More Uptempo “OG” will be making another return in 2023. The shoe was famously worn by Scottie Pippen during the Chicago Bulls’ 72-win championship season in 1995-96. For the 2023 release, the shoe will come with a few modifications to look closer to the original 1996 form than previous releases.

The shoe also comes with its original Black Jewel Swoosh on the heels. A Black rubber sole atop a a full-length Air-sole unit with a large White Swoosh underfoot completes the design.
