It's undeniable that Nike's domination over the aesthetic of 90s Basketball still holds true to this day. Every single year we're treated to a reissued retro model from an athlete alongside the staple drops of Jordan, Foamposite and Uptempos amongst others.
Taking that reissue formula and bringing in like-minded creatives that grew up in the era of these Goliaths to tinker with the silhouettes to then release out updates to classics. It's a tried and tested formula, and Nike has championed that ethos with two silhouettes this year, The Nike Air Maestro II and the Nike Air More Money.
The Nike Air Maestro II comes straight from the feet of one Scottie Pippen. Adopting aesthetics straight from the Huarache, the Maestro II takes cues from the best of Nike Basketball, now sporting an asymmetrical lacing system, a zipper enclosure, and a higher cut ankle strap, this ballers best is perfect for the court or streets. Finishing the pair off is a perfect combo of Black, White and Rush Orange
On the other hand (or foot), we have the brand new Nike Air More Money, another pair with ties to the Scottie Pippen arsenal (As well as Reggie Miller). Harnessing a union of the Nike Air Money upper with the sole unit of the classic Nike Air More Uptempo, it brings this highly affluent concoction to the top of Nike's Retro arsenal, offering statement branding or minimal symbolism on the upper with alternate tongues. This pair comes dressed in a triple black combo
