Yesterday was all about shattering barriers, and part of that strength comes from knowing we can always look back on our misconceptions and laugh. In the seventeen years since Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes made us laugh in White Men Can’t Jump, that phrase has been proven wrong many times, most notably by 1996 NBA Slam Dunk Contest winner Brent Barry. However dated, the movie stands as a time capsule depicting the early ’90s streetball style and these Nike Flight Lite High kicks come with a funky throwback colourway.
Limited to 72 pairs and part of Nike’s Media Pack, which we’ll have more info on soon, this is one of the zaniest releases we’ve seen all year. A super high white basketball sneaker that screams “Nineteen ninety!”, the Flight Lite WMCJ edition rocks orange, yellow, purple and silver accents. Throw in a multicoloured sole with some icy inserts, and a look at the sole with a big “Nike AIR” logo right in the middle will do the trick. Back to 1992, by way of Osneaker, who are among the lucky few with these in stock now.
