Back in 2003, Nike released the Ultraflight as a statement to competitive brands that Nike is on the top when it comes to basketball technology. Worn by the likes of Gary Payton, Tony Parker, and even LeBron before entering the NBA, the Ultraflight was considered to be one of the most progressive basketball sneakers; both in technological specifications and in aesthetic design. Though we remember many consumers complaining of the difficulty of actually putting it on, once your feet were ready for an amazing fit, maximum cushioning, super stabilizing, lightweight sneaker.

Here we see a White/Varsity Maize-Black pair get broken down to reveal the anatomy of this masterpiece. Ultraflight designer, Aaron Cooper, actually took inspiration from Gary Payton’s Ferrari 360 Spyder. Cooper wanted to translate Ferrari’s use of a clear engine cover to emphasis to pride in the automobile’s inside just as much of the outside. Therefore, the transparent thermo-injected outer shell on the Ultraflight reveals the mechanics of the shoe. Now dissected you get a closer look into the Dynamic-Fit inner bootie, full length Zoom Air foot bed, along with the extra Zoom Air unit stacked in the heel. Take a further look at the careful dissection below. via Kenlu
