The Retro ComebackChicago had a banner year in 1996, and all those successes of MJ’s original team are what the Nike Air More Uptempo ’96 is all about. With branding that was more design centerpiece than subtle addition, it made waves on and off the court. The massive AIR text on the upper let everyone in on the lux inner-cushioning, and what was powering Scotty Pippen’s performance that season. Adding to the ’90s nostalgia, the shoe has been resurrected in new colorways to celebrate one of the most stand-out basketball sneakers of that decade.
