Talk to enough people in the industry and they may tell you that demand for big bulky basketball shoe retro’s is dying or dead. While there may be some truth behind a decrease in demand the More Uptempo is proving that demand is still there. Not only has the black white version dried up mostly but the white red color way has done a disappearing act as well and if thats any indication of the shoes demand then the olympic color way will be gone in a flash also. Its a shoe thats in your face, big and bulky and expensive all of which should be working against the shoes release but has actually worked in its favor. They didn’t slim it down or do a bunch of luxe releases to move these. No, Nike stuck to its original formula and it worked which proves that if you do a highly desirable basketball shoe from yesteryear right then people will cop regardless of the shoes size.
