Nike Air Flight ’89 “Red Toro”

June 21st, 2013 by | 8 comments

nike air flight 89 red black grey Nike Air Flight 89 Red Toro

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.

Nike Air Flight ’89 – Black – Blue Speckle

Despite its connections with the Air Jordan IV, the Nike Air Flight ’89 only occasionally adds speckling details to the tooling.  This newest makeup comes in black suede with blue and white accents, the former of which features the splatter pattern in question on the midsole.  This is more of an early 1990s colorway than late ’80s, which gives this drop an interesting feel that you can secure early with a pre-order from End.

Nike Air Flight 89 – Cool Grey – Poison Green

April 23rd, 2013 by | 1 comment

The Nike Air Flight 89 crown definitely belongs to this black and red pair at the moment. Just in case the Bulls-looking combination is a off-putting for you though, there are indeed more bangers on the horizon for this Nike Retro favorite. Shown here is one of them, a combination of cool grey and poison green that switches around the typical textures found on the upper. The poison green thing was kind of an Easter thing, but these are a little bit far out from that date to really qualify. Check out the Nike Air Flight 89 below and then purchase a pair for yourself from Caliroots.

Nike Air Flight ’89 – Black – White – Red

Forever linked in conversation with the Air Jordan IV thanks to their shared tooling, the Nike Air Flight ’89 is back in a new colorway that should only serve to deepen that connection.  This newest Air Flight 89 comes in that familiar palette that’s synonymous with Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls, a style whose mix of tumbled and microperforated leathers offer a throwback to a time when basketball sneakers weren’t dominated by synthetic materials.  The white/black split midsole is an interesting look that hopefully we’ll see on more colorways, and you can check out this pair in depth below before buying from Nike Sportswear dealers like Size?

Nike Air Flight ’89 – White – Hyper Blue

The Nike Air Flight ’89 continues to outpace the rest of the late ’80s basketball archives (be it Nike Sportswear or any other brand), and another new colorway has arrived with the latest new blocking pattern. It looked quite a bit different in black and Bright Citrus and though closer, and this new one is perhaps even further away from the metallic copper edition that also hit in grey-piped white leather. Now with Hyper Blue running up the eyestay and tongue, the model takes on a more classic appeal, though those of us who’ve been around for the whole quarter-century since its debut will instantly recognize it’s just a bit outside of the classic colorblocking. Decide for yourself how good the new style looks after you’ve seen more photos below, then look for them at NSW retailers like Caliroots.

Nike Air Flight ’89 “Copper”

The Air Flight ’89 production channel never really saw a stop over the last decade – it was only last year that we saw a considerable bump in colorways largely due to the fact that the Air Jordan IV was massively Retroed and extra midsole molds were probably available for use. One thing to note about this Air Jordan IV cousin is that the outsole features ‘Nike’, which could signify – in light of the recent Retro ’88 release – that an Air Jordan IV with ‘Nike Air’ could happen! That’s all speculation at this point, but this new ‘Copper’ colorway of the Air Flight ’89 is still a sick one for those who love this late-80′s cult hit, so enjoy the additional angles they’ve provided below and don’t forget to cop your pair on Eastbay.

Nike Air Flight ’89 – Black – Bright Citrus

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.
