Having your own signature sneaker no matter how big or how small is always a special experience. But have you ever wondered what people’s first reactions are to seeing the finished product? Scottie Pippen sat down with Sole Collector recently and talked about what his first reaction was when he saw the Nike Air More Uptempo way back in 1996.
“I thought the shoe was a bit arrogant actually,”
Imagine that. 20 years later the shoe is set to retro once again in the OG Olympic colorway in honor of the 2016 Summer Olympics and the silhouette’s 20th anniversary. So what are Scottie’s thoughts on the shoe 20 years later? “I think it’s been a shoe that stood the test of time,” Pippen said. “I think it will always be a very popular shoe. I think kids like it?it?s definitely a shoe that stands out.”
We couldn’t agree with you more. That “AIR” branding is iconic and like nothing we’ve seen before. Will you scooping up the Olympic colorway when it returns on July 20th?
