To the delight of many Nike retro’ed the Air Pippen back in 2008 in a selection of colorways which included the OG Black/White/Red version which Scottie Pippen wore during the 1997 NBA Finals. Although we appreciated seeing the Air Pippen make a comeback we felt sort of cheated when Nike didn’t drop the White/Black/Metallic Silver and instead worked up a few new color schemes to release alongside the OG playoff version.
Maybe they heard our complaints and requests to bring back the other OG colorway of the Air Pippen cause Footlocker has just announced that later this year Nike will be dropping the White/Black/Metallic Silver version. As you can see, or may remember if you had the originals, this version of the Air Pippen consists of a white leather upper with metallic silver detailing and black added to the outsole, inner lining and Nike Swoosh on the heel of the upper.
