The Nike Air Flight One returned to the spotlight in Orlando during the NBA All-Star aka ‘Galaxy’ weekend, and while the original colorway named after its hometown exposed the younger generation to a nearly forgotten cult favorite, it’d take a serious sneakerhead to call out all the other OGs for this model. One of those was a mostly-white royal-accented editon that came towards the end of this model’s first run in 1995, a colorway we see reworked with a splashier approach above. And while we can’t expect to see these hit retail with Penny Hardaway‘s signature as on the toe of this pair you’ll see after the jump, they do indeed seem poised to introduce a new blocking pattern for this model. But given the recent popularity of classics with that same antique varsity simplicity of late, would you have rather seen this pair or its black or red brethren released in the original form? Let us know when you click through for more images and stick with Sneaker News for release info.
