nike air flightposite blue silver volt Nike Air Flightposite   2013 No Zip Sample

Nike continues spelunking down the deep caverns of its Hoops catalog by bringing out the Nike Air Flightposite for another round of Retros. A few notable occurrences in this 2013 Retro; first off, the colorway is unlike anything we’ve ever seen, spurning the monotone color-blocking for a multi-layered composition, and secondly this 2013 Sample will feature no zipper enclosure on the upper. The Nike Air Flightposite is known for the inner bootie construction with a shroud, but it appears that these will be something along the Nike Air Foamposite Lite in that it won’t feature any shroud on the upper. We’re certain the opinions are cooking up so check out the full shot below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more.

20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Air Flightposite (1999)

nike air flightposite 1999 7 20 Years Of Nike Basketball Design: Air Flightposite (1999)

After a fairly thorough excavation of the legendary 1995-96 season and its immediate followups, Nike Basketball continues its journey through the past two decades of excellence with the spiritual successor to yesterday’s entrant.  ’97′s Air Foamposite One set the bar with a then-record $170 MSRP and a design that remains ‘futuristic’ to this day, and two years later, Foamposite lead designer Eric Avar leveraged the technology to “create a seamless extension of your body.”  The Nike Air Flightposite was born two years later with a sleeker design inspired by classical anatomy drawings and a unique zipper enclosure that made it one of the smoothest basketball shoes ever created.  Click through to see more photos, sketches and words from the designer (conspicuous by a complete absence of Kevin Garnett references) and stick with Sneaker News for tomorrow’s look back over 20 years of Nike Basketball brilliance.

Nike Air Flightposite – Kevin Garnett ‘The Future’ PE

One intense NBA rivalry that has coole down a bit over the last few years has been the feud between future Hall of Fame big men Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs and Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics. Both were tagged by Nike early on in their careers and were even featured together in one of the more memorable Nike basketball adverts ever (Kevin Garnett taking on the world in a game of pick-up ball), so while their careers were destined for similar paths of greatness, the two couldn’t have been farther from each other in every other aspect outside of the game. Duncan made his presence known with his silent charisma, while KG is noted for his notorious in-game trash-talking sparked by an intense flame fanned by the spirit of competition, and because both have stayed true to the fundamentals of the game, both continue to be forces to be reckoned with.

Perhaps this June, NBA fans could be in for one final showdown between Duncan and KG, and it’ll certainly be one to watch because KG and Duncan, quite frankly, simply don’t like being around one another. Going back to KG’s Nike’s roots – the 6’11″ forward was outfitted with the Air Flightposite line (which later became associated with his name), and today we get a look at one of the rarest PEs of the era –  a Black/White colorway with KG’s initials on the ‘tongue’ and ‘The Future’ labeled on the heel-tabs. So: Flightposite, or Total Foamposite Max? Which Foam-based shoe made for the two most dominant big-men of our generation is more treasured? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to check out the gallery of this rare PE before you head on over to the listing from masauction on eBay.

nike air flightposite carnage customs Nike Air Flightposite Carnage Customs by Jonathan Carrington

The comic book theme is always a popular choice for custom sneaker jobs, one that we’ve even seen exploited on Foamposite models once before in the killer Captain America/Dr. Doom pack. This time around the Nike Air Flightposite is the canvas, utilized by customizer Jonathan Carrington who borrows the splattered black/red look from symbiotic Spiderman villain Carnage. Carrington goes all out, extending the vicious paint job to the box as well as the grooved uppers of this lesser known Foam model. Follow us after the jump for a full look at this Foamposite customization and let us know if you think they nailed the look.
