I’ve written several posts about Nike ruining the Air More Uptempo in both Mens and Kids sizes, see post below
Now I think the brand is beginning to release certain silhouettes like the uptempo in specific colorways that are derivative of other models in the same colors that are doing fantastic in both the retail and third party marketplace. What I’m trying to say is that the only reason why Nike released the court purple Uptempo in kids is because the brand is targeting a certain demographic. I’ve written about the new breed of resellers that I named “locusts” see post below
Now back to my early assertion; the court purple Jordan 1’s were highly sought after by ” locusts” and Nike saw that there was a lane there and created the court purple uptempo for that particular target market.
This is how much the GS air jordan 1 court purple is reselling for on eBay ( $300 to $399). So you have to wonder why the court purple uptempo didn’t release in men’s sizes. If they are only available in smaller sizes, this tells me that Nike is specifically targeting those “locusts” i mentioned. This is just an observation, I think the colorway is hideous and I don’t see it the shoes flying off shelves at all.
