Nike is Bringing Back This Iconic ‘90s Sneaker
Nike is tapping into our love of nostalgic trends with its upcoming sneaker release. As Footwear News reports, the athletic brand is bringing back the iconic Air More Uptempo style, which was originally made popular in the '90s. But there are two important changes worth mentioning.
According to FN, this will be the brand's first-ever women-exclusive sneaker release. And while this style will maintain most of the same characteristics you know and love from the classic version, the major upgrade will be its color. But we have a feeling you'll be quite a fan of it.
Nike describes the color of the shoe as "barely green." This soft mint background lends way to bold white letters, spelling out "AIR," on the sides of the shoe. It's a subtle, soft color choice that'll make a statement without an overpowering look-at-me-vibe.
The shoes will officially be available for purchase on October 12 at a fairly reasonable price point of $160. Mark your calendars, fans of these '90s Nike sneakers, the shoes will be released at exactly 10:00 a.m. EDT.
