'96 CLASSIC IS BACK. The Nike Air More Uptempo '96 brings classic basketball back to the streets. It has '90s graffiti-styled graphics alongside visible full-length Air cushioning. Elastic straps over the tongue keep your style sharp whether you rock them laced or unlaced. The throwback, chunky design combines with of-era over-branding for a look that will never fade.
Originally designed for performance hoops, the Max Air units add lightweight, durable cushioning. Returning to classic materials, these shoes have velvety leather and super airy mesh. Elastic straps run across the top of the foot, letting you wear your sneakers without lacing up. Synthetic leather underlays add dimension beneath the iconic "AIR" lettering. The round laces match the round pull tabs for added style points while making it easy to lace up and take on and off.
