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?
