Was it not for a significant turn of events, the Air Jordan line would have paved a completely different road. Michael was poised to be the primary representative for Nike Basketball’s new ‘Flight’ division, balancing out the rugged ‘Force’ that was (no pun intended) a force since ’82. Instead, the Air Jordan legacy continued on a greater path, but Michael still wore the Air Flight ’89, making the shoe one of the greatest cult-hits today. We first showed you a preview of numerous Flight ’89 colorways for 2012 then followed that up with a look at a sample pair of the ‘True Blue’, but much to the satisfaction of flight ’89 fans, worldwide this well-executed colorway is now available at in-store at select retailers like Oneness.

They look on point, but just looking at the material quality from the pics I can tell its that very cheap feeling synthetic crap. I'll wait til these end up at the outlets.
I remember having a pair of these in elementary school. They were White/Grey/Black. Those were some great shoes. May have to pick up a pair.
