Looking at this latest release, one can’t help but wonder what would happen if some of Nike Sportswear’s basketball classics took on the Engineered Mesh upgrade. This new Nike Air Flight ’89 resembles NSW’s ‘Sunrise Pack’ of EM updates thanks to the combination of black and Bright Citrus, the latter of which seems particularly dusky (or dawn-y, as the case may be) in these images. Have a closer look below, let us know how these compare to the colorways we saw in 2012 and stick with Sneaker News as we approach the March release.

Nike Air Flight ’89 – White – Grey

The Air Flight ’89 has an incredible cult following among older heads, but we can’t deny the fact that a crop of younger sneakerheads gave this shoe some more attention once Kanye was seen wearing a pair. We can’t help but admit that the hip-hop star does influence fashion sense, but the Air Flight ’89 was a classic long before ‘Ye wore ‘em. This new White/Grey colorway is the latest to roll out of NSW’s catalog, and quite honestly, it begs for some black speckling on the midsole for that ‘White/Cement’ appeal. More angles below, so take a look and keep an eye out for a release soon.

A consistent contributor to the Nike Sportswear catalog over the past year, the Nike Air Flight 89 returns with another of the high-energy colorups to which it was introduced in 2012. A grade school-sized release with a fairly strong feminine lean, this Neo Turquoise and Electric Yellow-accented Fusion Pink build reads like an ‘Un-’ to the ‘London’ edition that dropped last August. They’re the latest example of how the CMYK palette is impactful in any arrangement, seen below in more photos and¬†available¬†now at Afew.

Nike Air Flight ’89 GS “Photo Blue”

The Nike Air Flight ’89 is commonly seen as the Air Jordan IV’s little brother (it is riding an almost identical sole setup, after all). We often see Chicago-style colorups in reference to this fact, but here’s a case where the Flight 89 debuts a totally novel palette. Combining rookie shades Squadron Blue and Hyper Red with the slightly more tenured Photo Blue base results in an impactful leather build that takes the simpler blocking tendencies associated with this model’s era and translates that essence into today’s monochromatic look. This Air Flight 89 GS just popped up at select Nike Sportswear retailers, so have a closer look, then grab a pair from Afew.

Any Air Flight ’89 fans out there? The sneaker that shares the same midsole as the Air Jordan IV was intended to be Michael Jordan’s shoe as the ambassador of Air Flight continues to be re-issued year after year, with 2012′s offerings of ‘True Blue’ and such being impressing the older Nike Basketball society of fans. This new colorway for 2013 mixes a basic Anthracite and Black with a pop of patent leather on the tongue, ankle, and Swoosh with just the right hit of teal on the contrast stitching. Maybe Finish Line should’ve picked these as the ‘Total Blackout‘ Pack representative? More shots below, so take a look and expect these in ’13.

When the Nike Air Flight wing was first created in the late 1980′s, Michael Jordan was originally selected as the lead athlete to take Flight to unimaginable heights. Instead, the Air Jordan line continued (remember, Jordan contemplated leaving Nike after the Air Jordan II) and Ron Harper was selected as the ‘Flight’ athlete, for which the Air Flight (now referred to with the ’89 suffix) was the main sneaker. The Air Flight ’89, to this day, is one of hte more revered Nike Basketball models in history, and this upcoming new colorway that matches a basic White and Cool Grey with a dazzling bronze patent leather for an astounding ‘luxury’ appeal. Your thoughts?

Foot Locker has tagged the period from next Monday through Saturday the #WeekOfGreatness in honor of the tremendous collection of heat that’ll pass through their doors those six days. FL’s biggest remaining competitor in the mall retail market has notable plans of its own this week, including the launch of an exclusive pack featuring the traditional Black(out) Friday colorup with just a little twist. This new Nike Air Flight 89 represents the ‘Total Blackout Pack’, a FinishLine-exclusive six-pack that adds subtle speckling and red accents to otherwise stealthy tonal black builds. The colorway and that midsole detailing furthers the connection this model shares with Class of ’89 peer Air Jordan IV (whose legendary ‘Bred’ OG hits on Friday), and you can see more photos after the jump below.
