This year will mark the 20th Anniversary for the 1996 USA Olympic Team were Scottie Pippen who was referred to as ‘Dream Team 2’ wore the Nike Air More Uptempo ‘Olympic’. This colorway has not been seen on the streets since four years ago in 2012.

The shoe comes dressed in a patriotic mix of Red, White and Blue which will look like the original release that took place back in 1996 and retro 2012. It features a full Midnight Navy upper with the word ‘AIR’ across the sides. White and Gold are seen on the number 8 located on the heel of each shoe, which was a nod to Pippen’s Olympic number. Hints of red are seen on the swoosh logo on the tongue and bottom of each shoe as well. Even though this is not a signature shoe for Pippen, his name and the silhouette have been synonymous for the 20 year history of the shoe.


The Nike Air More Uptempo “Olympic” is set to release on July 20th, 2016 at select Nike Sportswear retail stores and online. The retail price tag is $160 USD. Let us know what you think of this release in the comments section below and continue reading for detailed images.
