The new Nike Air Max Uptempo 97s make use of the brand's beloved 'University Blue' colorway and have a variety of synthetic accents that help them to stand out.

The uppers are constructed from nubuck, which is split up with different layers of material, allowing a wavy design to be created near the bottoms. On these components, Nike's branding is including minimally, with its iconic Swoosh logo decorating the area near the toe in a matching hue of bright ocean blue.

Closer to the backs of the heels, the Swoosh logo is featured again, where it is surrounded by synthetic accents that look like droplets of water. The Nike Air Max Uptempo 97s also have transparent midsoles, which have accents of blue within them.
