Creating new colorways on a memorable sneaker design can be hit or miss. Often times, especially on retro models, the original colorways seem to be the ones that really grab the emotional ties that many of us have to sneakers from the past. The original colorway of the Nike Air Max Uptempo 97 released earlier this year, and as can be expected it seemed to move quickly into the closets of collectors worldwide.
Today’s Eastbay Photo of the Week captures one of the unforgettable details of the Nike Air Max Uptempo from 1997. Although this colorway wasn’t one that originally appeared on the shoe in the late nineties, the color combination appears to be one that should also have many collectors reaching for their wallet to add a pair to their collection.
This color combination of Wolf Grey, Black and Gridiron will arrive at Eastbay in March but for now enjoy this sneak peek.
