With the modern holiday season being dominated by high-quality sneaker releases, it's hard to know what's worth the hype and effort. Following on from a smattering of great iterations this year, we can confirm the brand new Obsidian Uptempo 96 is worth the hype.
Considering the high profile drops of the silhouette this year, namely the divisive Supreme collaboration earlier in the year, Nike has been utilising on the reinvested interest into the classic 90s Basketball silhouette and executing on the plushest of materialisation. This Obsidian remix doesn't buck the trend either.
With a mixture of leather and Nubuck dominating the monochromatic upper, a leather outline around the AIR lettering accents the classic branding. Tonally stitched obsidian branding sits on the toe and tongue of the upper, as well as tonal jewel branding on the heel allowing the AIR to standout. Hits of white across the swoosh branding on the lateral sides and sole as always sit as a statement from Nike. A tonal midsole encases the classic encapsulated Air sole unit.
It's not hard to see why this classic is still kicking it on the feet of the stylish, young and old. Get your pair now at Soleheaven.com
