Nike Basketball Inside Access: Nike Air Maestro Flight 1

March 4th, 2014 by / 14

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. Debuting that year and quickly becoming a hallmark of the line was the Nike Air Maestro Flight 1, a sneaker worn by luminaries like Scottie Pippen, Ron Harper and John Stockton during the 1992-93 season. 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. Continue reading for some vintage shots of the sneaker, as well as a glance at the new Hyper Rev design that it helped inspire, and read more on this classic Nike Basketball silhouette over at Nike INC now.

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.
