Nike Basketball Inside Access: Nike Air Maestro Flight 1
Back in 1992 there was a key division amongst Nike Basketball’s on-court offerings. There was the “Force” line, designed for bulkier players, and there was the “Flight” line, intended for the athletes who attacked the hardwood with a faster style of play.

Of course that wasn’t the only place you could spot the sneakers back then – a young Jason Kidd also donned them during his freshman year at Cal.

@sneakernews when is this releasing?
@sneakernews I'd like to see the Air Force V retroed. The low
@sneakernews been craving a retro of those for 14+ years. my favorite on court shoe ever. had 3 pair back when no one had multiples.
@sneakernews Sure do. Fab 5 rocked these joints
One of my all-time favorite kicks. They had a fatal flaw though. The sole at the heel would peel off after a few wears. I had like 5 pairs of these because of that flaw...finally had to get another kick my senior year of high school bball.
Great performing kicks though; still in my top 5 performance kicks of all time.
@PeteDWilson yes, that's right the infamous air pounds! Helped you with many a turnaround j from the baseline!
