The Nike Air Pippen was originally introduced in 1996; it was Scottie Pippen’s first signature shoes. Pippen’s is probably the best two way player in the history of basketball in my opinion. He was a prelude of Lebron James and the perfect complement Michael Jordan needed for his six championships with the Bulls. As you all know, brands have been pretty adamant about reviving the best era of basketball, the 90’s and we’ve seen countless shoes making a comeback over the past five years. The uptempo’s have been completely adulterated and I think the Nike Air pippen will receive the same treatment.
The shoes feature a wheat upper made up of mesh materials underlays and suede overlays on the panels, toe box and back. Scottie Pippen’s name will grace the outside of the tongue and Nike swoosh logos can be spotted at the heel and on the toe box as well. These were primarily built for performance but interestingly Pippen’s own pair was constructed with invisible zoom units instead of the visible air max units you see on the picture above. Here is a breakdown of the features:
- Visible Max Air unit offers responsive cushioning.
- Textile collar for a comfortable fit around the ankle.
- Contoured Phylon midsole for a durable, lightweight cushioning.
- Full rubber outsole offers durability and traction.
