The Nike LeBron 17 “Uptempo” is a Spring 2020 release that finds LeBron James’ seventeenth signature shoe with Nike Basketball in the color scheme of the beloved Air More Uptempo. Paying homage to Scottie Pippen’s signature shoe from the ‘97, this Nike LeBron 17 “Uptempo” is dressed in a familiar Chicago Bulls-style color scheme. The University Red Knitposite upper features marbled accenting on the mid-panel and heel. White trim along the collar contrasts the black knit tongue and black laces. A split white and black nylon pull tab on the tongue assists with easy on-off access. Translucent molding on the heel displays an inverted black Swoosh. The large visible Air cushioning unit in the heel extends to the forefoot. The special edition colorway is finished with the classic Uptempo logo added to a lace loop covering near the toe. The Nike LeBron 17 “Uptempo” was released on May 8, 2020.
