Scottie Pippen Thought The Nike Air More Uptempo Was Arrogant The First Time He Saw It

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?

What you see above is a brand new colorway of the Nike KD 9. Dubbed the Nike KD 9 Unlimited, what makes this colorway even more interesting, is the fact that this color scheme will be in full use for the Olympics in Rio this Summer.

The Unlimited colorway will be used in several different models, one being the Nike KD 9. The colorway consists of a mix of Volt, Hyper Punch and Black. The Unlimited colorway is said to be inspired by the iridescent hues of tropical fauna and the speedof athletes in motion. As of right now, the shoe is scheduled to release on August 4th along with the rest of the sneakers donning the same look. Are you a fan of the style?

I like the fact that they opted to give with something other than the traditional Red, White and Blue. It’s bold and vibrant, but it’s not too out there. I like it.

The next release for the Li-Ning Way Of Wade 4 takes inspiration from two different cities in the US. Known as the Li-Ning Way Of Wade 4 Chicago & Miami Pack, this two sneaker pack represents Wade’s home town of Chicago and the place he currently calls home, Miami.

Each colorway also features left & right insoles with printed maps of their respective city. The aqua colorway of the Miami shoe signifies the Dolphins colors and the Miami water. The orange for Chicago represents the Bears accent color.

Look for the Li-Ning Way Of Wade 4 Chicago & Miami Pack to release on Wednesday, July 6th at WayofWade.com, NBA Store in NYC and Edition Boutique in Miami. Retail price will be $333 for the set.

A perfect rendition of classic aesthetics meets modern technology.

With that said, we’re happy to let you know that two new colorways of the adidas Originals EQT Support 93-16 are on the horizon. One comes in Black, the other comes in White.

No release date yet, but expect these to drop sometime in the near future.

Never been a fan of this EQT model, but adding a Boost sole definitely makes the shoe more attractive. I dig it.

adidas NMD XR1, 1 adidas NMD XR1, 2 adidas NMD XR1, 3 adidas NMD XR1, 4 adidas NMD XR1, 5 adidas NMD XR1, 6 adidas NMD XR1, 7

Have you had a chance to take a look at the adidas NMD XR1? This new NMD model is said to be a new version of the original NMD model. For the most part, the shoe manages to keep a lot of similar traits, but one feature that was changed on the shoe was the addition of a new support cage at the midfoot. Instead of having a clean slate on the side panels, the shoe now has some more dimension and volume to it. This colorway of the shoe has it come in all-White, with branding noted on the tongue and heel. Not much info has been given about the shoe and no official announcement has been given by adidas, but as of right now the shoe is rumored to be releasing sometime in November. Are you looking forward to the release? Let us know in the comments below.

The Popular Vachetta Tan Hits The Nike Air Trainer 2

Nike Sportswear is bringing back the Nike Air Trainer 2 to prominence after the model sat out the past few seasons. You might remember that back in 2015, the Air Trainer 2 was featured in a low top rendition that utilized monochromatic leather uppers in that coveted “Mint” release. It showcased that the 90s performance staple could transition into the lifestyle realm rather nicely which goes doubly for this Vachetta Tan creation. The tan hue has been featured on some of Nike Sportswear and Jordan Brand’s most premium lifestyle renditions, and here the cross trainer is no different. The mesh side panel contrasts in black while touches of orange land on the lace eyelets and Nike Air branding for subtle contrast. What do you think of the look? Check out more photos below and grab your size at retailers like Villa.
