Suptempo by Nike and Supreme

Are you ready for take-off?! It’s THE Nike x Supreme launch day that we have all been waiting for.

April 27, 2017

Two of the most powerful and influential brands of today, Nike and Supreme, have joined forces to collaborate on a sneaker that is set to launch TODAY, April 27. Both Nike and Supreme have previously released teaser images and had various previews of the More Uptempo shoe but the official drop day is finally upon us.

The Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo sneaker will be released in three different colorways: red and white, triple black, and metallic gold and white, whereas the iconic and classic ’90s hoop shoe— Suptempo as they call it—sees the original “AIR” design replaced by “Supreme” and features the classic 3 Air-Sole units with elastic gores running along the tongues of the shoe.

The original More Uptempo model was released back in 1996 and became a major hit. But it wasn’t until basketball All Star Scottie Pippen wore the Olympic colorway—the iconic blue and white combination—that the Nike Air More Uptempo shoe became legendary.

Available only at Supreme’s online stores in both the US and Europe from today onwards, closely followed by a Saturday, April 29 release in Japan (in both physical and online stores), the new Uptempo has a price tag of $180 US dollars.

And let’s face it, we all know that the sneakers will sell out in a matter of minutes—if not seconds—so grab yourself a pair while you still can.
