The shoes showed up on Nike endorser Neymar Jr. last week and the internet went crazy. Personally, I don’t think you mess with the classic. The Uptempo was my surprise resale shoe of the year in 2016. The hype is real on the shoe without the Supreme branding, but I’m sure it will be off the meter once these drop.

The makeup is similar to the Pinnacle 6. Surprisingly the Pinnacle didn’t pop in resale, but no Jordan is really jumping off like that. The Air More Uptempo remained steady at 220-299 a pair for GR releases in every colorway.

With the Supreme branding… This shoe will probably hit in a big way.

Note: Jones quickly removed this bulky, beast of a shoe for his remaining dunks and went with the Kobe 11 Elite. Check out the dunk below.
