Originally released in 1997, the Nike Air Total Max Uptempo will be returning in its original Black/Volt colorway that was last seen in 2009.And it seems as though the Swoosh team has been further digging into their archives because we’re now learning that they’re slated to bring back yet another retro hoops silhouette this year – the Air Total Max Uptempo.The Nike Air Total Max Uptempo shoe was worn in the late ’90s by NBA players such as David Robinson, Reggie Miller and Vince Carter. Much like the OG,Nike Air Total Max Uptempo features a Black leather and nubuck upper with mesh in the rear highlighted by Volt contrasting accents.Based off of newly surfaced official imagery, we find that most of the real estate from the tumbled leather side walls to the nubuck throat overlays are dyed in a stark black, but the pair is spruced up with vibrant energy through the volt accents that stand out through the Swooshes, full-length Air units, and tongue logos. 3M reflective detailing atop a translucent Volt and Black rubber outsole completes the design.

The shoe comes constructed with Cordura fabric fully covered in Tan hues paired with vibrant Orange accents. Right shoes don a black tag denoting the aforementioned famed nylon material, sitting above a leather swoosh. A Black tag on the right shoe nods to the famed durable material completed with a more rugged outsole made for the colder months.
