Soft Contrasting Summer Slides

Nike Unveils a New Tonal Air More Uptempo Slide Colorway

— February 11, 2023 — Fashion
Nike unveils a new tonal iteration of the Air More Uptempo Slide silhouette that readies for the warmer seasons ahead. The shoes were recently seen in a blue gradient palette and now it gets a classic fusion of black, white, and red across the silhouette.

The upper layer starts off with an oversized structure and nubuck materials that make out the 'AIR' lettering seen along the lateral and medial sides of the shoe in black. Under this is a white base foundation accented with perforated details between each letter. A bright pop of red is seen by the Swoosh logo emblem that is stamped over the bridge of the foot. Rounding out the shoe are the circular Nike logos on the footbeds and black and white stripes.
