The Nike Air More Uptempo “Rayguns” is one of several retro basketball sneakers by Nike to feature a colorway inspired by the fictional Roswell Rayguns basketball team. Joining models like the Nike Blazer Mid, Air Raid, and Air Force 1, the Air More Uptempo “Rayguns” is a groovy design that draws from the team uniform colors of the Rayguns, an ABA-like basketball team created by Nike for an advertisement that aired during the 2002 NBA Playoffs. A clean white leather material forms the base of the upper. The Air More Uptempo’s signature graffiti-style “AIR” branding displays black, orange, and yellow outlining on either side of the shoe. A yellow Swoosh is embroidered on the toe and a jeweled Swoosh can be found on the heel. Yellow and orange nylon pull tabs on the tongue and heel, respectively, assist with on/off wearability. The glossy orange leather overlay on the white leather tongue features a yellow Swoosh. Visible Air units in the midsole are consistent with the original styling of Scottie Pippen’s former signature basketball shoe.
