Quite possibly the most popular Nike Sportswear 1980s basketball model not named ‘Air Force 1’ or ‘Dunk’, the Nike Air Flight ’89 has made good use of a new blocking pattern this year. The latest example of the contrasting eyestay has a tongue to match, as the Air Flight 89 adds white contrasts to a bold red upper. These come off like an alternate take on the ‘Fire Red Toro’ Air Jordan IV, but it’s possible these could be harder to come by if they turn out to be an AP exclusive. Stick with Sneaker News to see if a US release follow and enjoy some new images on the other side in case that’s the closest you’ll ever get to them.

I got them from Eastbay for $70, shipped. A classic shoe with a slept-on colorway. I'm glad re-sellers and hypebeasts ignore these kind of releases.
