Nike to Release Air More Uptempo Flax Sneakers
The Nike Air More Uptempo has seen a resurgence in popularity in 2017, and with the Swoosh continuing to push new versions of the basketball sneaker, today the brand introduces its latest colorway.
Releasing for the first time in a wheat colorway, Nike adds the the flax hue to the entire nubuck upper of this Air More Uptempo. With hits of white featured on the Nike logo and the big, bold “AIR” branding, the sneakers sits atop of an Air Bubble Unit and a matching colored outsole.

Released originally in the signature black and white colorway, the sneaker made its return in 2016, and since then has been released in several other iterations.
A release date for the Nike Air More Uptempo flax is set for Sat., Nov. 9. Launching at select Nike retailers and accounts the shoes will retail for a suggested price of $160.
