THIS DAY IN SNKRS
On July 20, 1996, Scottie Pippen laced up the Air More Uptempo in red, white and blue for the first time, repping the nation on the world's stage. The Atlanta clash of the globe's best basketball players provided the perfect stage for Pippen's bold Uptempo statement, as the home team took on Argentina to kick off the games.
Going for gold just like the team, the sneaker featured Pippen's #8 on the heel in gilded stitching. Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic sneaker, and get Scottie's take on the legendary shoe in the video above.
