Nike Max A Lot
The Nike Max A Lot pays tribute to former NBA champion Scottie Pippen by combining elements of the Nike Air More Uptempo and the Nike Air Pippen II.

Nike also updated the overall design that gives the Nike Max A Lot a fresh streamlined appearance.
Now more than a decade later, it seems as though the hard work, industry shifting designs and legacies of the past are seemingly being undone with the release of each and every pieced-together hybrid "tribute" shoe. The Nike Air Max A Lot basketball shoe, a meld of the Air More Uptempo and Air Pippen II, is hardly what anyone would label a modern icon.

Full-length, injected Phylon midsole with exposed visible Air unit in the heel. Outsole patterns inspired by some of Nike's most influential flight shoes. Continue Reading...
