‘Mercurial’ is one word that can readily describe Kanye West’s public persona, and his sneaker selection certainly qualifies.  Kanye just launched his second Nike Sportswear smash hit collaboration, but instead of basking in the glory of the Air Yeezy 2, Mr. West has gone back into the archives for a few of his favorites.  In the wake of the Yeezy 2 launch, we’ve seen his beloved Air Jordan VI mixed in among a couple of Air Jordan 1 OG styles, and the return of this AJ4 peer whose 23rd anniversary year will end with the bang of five new colorways.  The Nike Air Flight 89 is on tap with new styles ranging from old school Chicago-style varsity to newfangled lifestyle looks, so click through to see more angles and stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability.

Nike Air Flight ’89 “Fireberry”

Remember when Kanye West started to pop up in the Nike Air Flight ’89 earlier this year and everyone was certain that the model would suddenly be clamored over like never before? Well this upcoming colorway might be the first to really test that theory, marking the first time in a minute that the silhouette has arrived with any sort of theme attached. That theme comes as a somewhat tenuous connection to the “World Baksetball Festival” pack, with the Flight pictured sporting quite the similar colorway and the exact same release date as the aforementioned set. Continue reading to check out this ultra bright pair of Nike Air Flight ’89s and let us know in the comments if you think these will get snapped up at retail.

Classics Revisited: Nike Basketball “Hoop” Pack (2005)

nike hoop pack 2005 Classics Revisited: Nike Basketball Hoop Pack (2005)


With Nike’s Retro Basketball line being such a major topic this year, it’s time we focus on one of the most concentrated Nike Basketball releases ever – the Nike ‘Hoop’ Pack of late 2005. Some may have overlooked these classics primarily because these were released exclusively overseas, so if you needed a reminder, there’s no better time than now. The Nike ‘Hoop’ Pack features a number of Nike Basketball models new and old ranging from the earliest Nike Blazer, to the new models like the Air Force Operate and Shox MTX. Sprinkled in between are other Classic models like the Air Force 180, Air Max Penny, and Air More Uptempo, but let’s break down this Pack even further.

The Nike ‘Hoop’ Pack was developed with a select group of NBA players in mind, with their teams acting as the maestros of each symphonic piece. The Air More Uptempo, which we attribute to Scottie Pippen, featured a re-mixed Chicago Bulls colorway with a daring Red upper and black patent leather on the big ‘AIR’. Penny Hardaway’s Air Max Penny threw in a contrasting University Blue in the classic Orlando, while four models featured the blazing Phoenix Suns colorway as the centerpiece. Being overseas exclusives (some released in Canada), the Hoop Pack was a tough find – particularly the lesser-known models like Tony Parker’s Air Double Figure (the Zoom Huarache 2k5 takedown model) and the aforementioned Shox MTX (Matrix, for Shawn Marion). Check out the entire Nike Hoop Pack of late 2005 below and stay tuned for more Pack goodness tomorrow in Classics Revisited!

Nike Air Flight ’89 – Black – Metallic Silver – Cyber

The Nike Air Flight 89 has excelled with the classic styles brought back this year, but arguably its best effort in 2012 was the totally new Neptune Blue and Action Green-accented Stealth edition. Fans of that drop are certain to find value in this new black nubuck drop, a design patterned with the exact same blocking template and even replicating the use of a vibrant ‘neon’ shade on the eyelets. We’ve now seen nine colorways on this Air Jordan IV peer so far this year; might this pair be the best so far? Let us know as you click through for additional views, then grab yours from NikeStore.

Nike Air Flight ’89 – Cool Grey – White – Anthracite

The Nike Air Flight ’89 has come back strong in its 23rd anniversary year, this second grey-uppered release of 2012 reflecting both how popular that neutral shade is and how versatile this classic silhouette really can be.  We got a considerably more energetic look out of grey nubuck when Neptune Blue and Action Green accented the Stealth edition, so especially by comparison, this new Cool Grey, Anthracite and white mix comes off as its primary color would suggest.  This is another one of those highly wearable models you can make one of your spring/summer go-to looks and they’re available now at Finish Line.

Nike Air Flight 89 HOH – Club Purple – White – Cool Grey

April 5th, 2012 by | 5 comments

Much has been made of the Air Jordan IV’s 25th anniversary and the pending retros, but the sneaker with which it shares the most in common has vastly outnumbered the Four in early 2012. So while all the attention given to February’s ‘White Cement’ AJ4 Retro was well deserved, this new Nike Air Flight 89 makes five already for the young year. 1 on 5 isn’t exactly an ideal basketball matchup (even Michael Jordan himself needed guys like Jud Buechler to have his back), but this new Sacramento Kings-leaning Air Flight 89 has those odds seeming just about perfect (until the Military Blue IVs touch down, anyway). Check them out in greater detail after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more info on this House of Hoops release.  Photos: LTD

After a few years resting in the Nike Sportswear vaults, the Nike Air Flight 89 returned in early 2012 to take advantage of its 23rd anniversary. It might not be getting the kind of attention that contemporary design the Air Jordan IV has this spring, but the Air Flight 89s already beat the Fours to the punch in releasing their ‘True Blue’ colorway. Next up is a duo that separates out that pair’s two accent shades so that we get one white leather pair with Soar accents and Cool Grey eyelets, another in Varsity Red with Wolf Grey. Check out both of them up close after the jump and grab yours now at NSW retailers like Premier.
