The Nike Air Max Uptempo '95 "Blue Fury" represents mid '90s footwear in all its glory. Originally designed with performance basketball in mind, the Nike Air Max Uptempo '95 is built to withstand the demanding hard stops and starts on the hardwood thanks to its chunky sole and hiking boot-inspired upper. White leather covers the upper with a contrasting Blue Fury-colored patent leather mudguard wrapping around the sneaker in its entirety. Further styling cues include a large light blue Swoosh hit on the mid-panel, a small embroidered Swoosh logo on the forefoot, and embroidered blue "AIR" branding along the eyelets. A white rubber Air Max Uptempo branding window appears on the heel with two Blue Fury heel tabs completing the look of the upper. True to the era in which it was created, a chunky white sole with Canyon Gold Swoosh branding and a visible full length Max Air cushioning system add a retro touch to the Air Max Uptempo '95.
