Was it not for a significant turn of events, the Air Jordan line would have paved a completely different road. Michael was poised to be the primary representative for Nike Basketball’s new ‘Flight’ division, balancing out the rugged ‘Force’ that was (no pun intended) a force since ’82. Instead, the Air Jordan legacy continued on a greater path, but Michael still wore the Air Flight ’89, making the shoe one of the greatest cult-hits today. We first showed you a preview of numerous Flight ’89 colorways for 2012 then followed that up with a look at a sample pair of the ‘True Blue’, but much to the satisfaction of flight ’89 fans, worldwide this well-executed colorway is now available at in-store at select retailers like Oneness.

When we mention sneakers who borrowed their midsole tooling from legendary Air Jordan silhouettes, the Nike Air Yeezy is probably the first to come to mind. And while Kanye’s first collaboration with the Swoosh was so successful that we’re awaiting the sequel, even a superstar record producer can’t move as many units as this throwback to the golden age of both hip-hop and sneaker design. The Nike Air Flight ’89 is back in 2012 after a little while on the shelf, this new black and grey getup the kind of simple yet effective colorway that’s truly timeless and could have just as easily been an OG as a fresh new look for spring. They come on the heels of a bred pair, which leaves the ‘True Blue’ edition and a brand new neon-accented grey pair for later this season, so with all these classically-influenced colorups, will you pick this one up today from NikeStore?

Nike Air Flight ’89 – Black – White – Sport Red

The Nike Air Flight ’89 played a prominent role in Nike Sport Culture’s mid/late-’00s strategy, its classic basketball lines taking on colorways and design elements from other legendary releases as a foreshadow of things to come after the Sportswear division was formed in 2008.  But interestingly enough, even as a trend it helped to pioneer is going stronger than ever, NSW has left the Air Flight ’89 off release schedules for pretty much its entire existence.  But in honor of its 23rd birthday (the Flight ’89s do look a lot like the Air Jordan IV that also turns 23 next year), we’ll be seeing some new drops, kicking off with this Chicago Bulls-styled black nubuck edition with white and Sport Red accents.  Check them out in greater detail after the jump and look for these at select NSW retailers like Long Island’s Sneaker Boutique or grab yours now on eBay.

Nike Air Flight ’89 ‘True Blue’ Sample

The Nike Air Flight ’89 was one of the first sneakers to represent Nike Basketball’s ‘Flight’ wing (the anti-thesis to the rough-edged Force). At that point, Michael Jordan was considered to take the helm for the new Flight squad, but Nike chose to go forward with the Air Jordan line, and appointed Ron Harper as the face of Nike Flight – with the Air Flight ’89 right beside him. Now considered a classic by many Nike connoisseurs, the Air Flight ’89 was re-issued quite a number of times over the decade, but there’s no doubt it’s a shoe that we can’t get enough of. Sneaker News gave you a preview of Spring 2012 releases of this Flight originator, and here we have a look at a sample of the White/Blue/Red colorway (we’ll call it the ‘True Blue’ for now). These are expected to release in early 2012, so take another look below and check out the listing from loco_1979 on eBay.
