An era dominated by bulging behemoths in the paint was slowly being taken over by high-flyers – the likes of Michael Jordan, Ron Harper, and other anti-Barkleys and Moses Malones. The Nike Air Flight of 1989 was part of the original Flight Series, which emphasized aerial attacks and the ability to “kiss the sky” while using the “zero gravity” advantages. Jordan was the original ‘Flight’ school attendee until he was branched off and given his own classroom, so it was up to the rest of the league’s quickest to take Flight to another level. Nike Flight is truly one of the more important historical eras, and it was all started with Nike Air Flight – a shoe you almost never see in perfect condition (except for the sick White/Grape Ice-Hot Lime pair you see before your very eyes). The Air Flight is the craftsman that laid the strong foundation for countless other classics, so take a quick look at deadstock pair below and do your best to cop this vintage Nike item from jasonwhite9 on eBay.
