Derrick Fisher’s first year as Knicks head coach has been one to forget, but his early-2000s Air Max Uptempo PE is worth remembering. So much so, in fact, that Nike is dropping it, 12 years after its 2003 debut. While it doesn't feature the PE detailing such as "D FISH" and "2" across the straps, it is the same colorway. The sneaker is hitting overseas accounts now, and will be following stateside soon.
Dropping along with this Lakers edition is a colorway hailing from the opposite side of the country: Miami. As pictured below, a South Beach version of the Air Max Uptempo will also be available.
