While the "Night Maroon" Air More Uptempo was originally scheduled to release on May 25, the shoes have arrived on Nike's SNKRS platform early. This colorway of the Scottie Pippen shoe is available now via the SNKRS app and the retailers listed there.

This is Nike's first attempt at what it's calling a "shock drop," an unannounced launch of a shoe via SNKRS. The brand says that it will roll out more releases like this in North America going forward.

Nike also recently updated its SNKRS app to feature geographically-gated launches, which it tested with the Los Angeles-exclusive release of the pink Don C x Air Jordan 2s.
