Derrick Jones Jr.’s “Gold” Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo

While the focus of the basketball world was focused on New Orleans this weekend, sneakerheads were looking at the footwear. This past Saturday saw the rookie, Derrick Jones Jr. taking to the court to compete in the 2017 Slam Dunk Contest. While he did not take the title, he showed his talents and his sneaker game as well.

In case you did not notice them, today we get a look at Derrick Jones Jr.’s “Gold” Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo. This eye-catching version features a tonal gold approach that also gets hits of red on the Swoosh. The clean combination features a thick white midsole that marks quite a contrast from A$AP Bari’s version. Check out the bold design in the images below and speak your thoughts on it after the jump.
