I’m not typically a fan of making adjustments to iconic sneakers, especially when it comes to Scottie Pippen’s Uptempo, one of the most famous basketball shoes of the 1990s. But I came across the Iron Grey Nike Air More Uptempo 96 Copy Paste early this morning, and there’s practically nothing negative to say about it.
The Uptempo 96 Copy Paste is a reimagining of the classic 1996 basketball shoe. The original shoe was designed by Wilson Smith and featured oversized “AIR” branding on the sides. The Copy Paste version updates the design with additional patent leather overlays and construction. They feature large Swooshes on the lateral sides and oval-shaped Nike emblems on the medial sides. Silver lines the silhouette’s characteristic huge “AIR” overlays, and 3M reflective rope laces run across the tongue and heel tab. The heel counter features a Swoosh emblem, with a second Swoosh embroidered on the toe. A full-length Air unit with a blue-tinted midsole complete the look.
What Makes The Shoe So Special?
The added details don’t take away from the shoe’s charismatic appeal, but actually enhance it. They actually emphasize what the shoe is all about – aggressive, fast paced basketball. One can literally see Scottie Pippen going coast to coast, detonating for a poster dunk. It is a comfortable, stylish shoe that is perfect for anyone who wants to feel nostalgic. If you’re a fan of the 90s, the shoe brings back all kinds of memories. And the colors are conservative enough to go with any outfit. The price point is also very good, at $160. If you’re interested in grabbing a pair, refer to the details below
