The Nike Air Max Uptempo ’97 Goes ‘Triple Black’ Just In Time For Fall


Nike Basketball celebrated the 20th anniversary of another classic sneaker last year, the Nike Air Max Uptempo ’97 and now it looks like one of the most popular colorways is dropping again. The classic Nike Air Max Uptempo ’97 which was formerly known as the Air Max Uptempo 3, made its debut back in 1997, and was most notably worn by Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen and several stars at the collegiate level. A fresh look for the Fall season, this colorway of the model comes dressed in a ‘Triple Black’ colorway that you can’t go wrong with. Much like the other Uptempo varieties, it’s upper grabs most of the attention, utilizing a boisterous and eye-catching construction as it’s focal point. Air branding takes shape on its lateral midfoot, sporting a quick touch of white on its embroidery to break up its dark aesthetic. You can’t go wrong with a pair of classics.

Make sure you grab your pair of the Nike Air Max Uptempo ’97 ‘Triple Black’ on September 22nd at
