Turf spikes on a basketball sneaker?! Still seems unconventional fifteen years later, but then again, the ‘bugeyed’ Zoom Flight 95 that preceded the Nike Zoom Uptempo V as Jason Kidd’s signature sneaker wasn’t exactly run of the mill, either. Kidd has continued his avant garde approach to kicks and become the leader of a generation of aging stars who signed with Asian footwear brands, so this model formerly known as the Zoom Flight Five preserves his legacy with the Swoosh even as his first and only NBA championship was won wearing Peaks. This red-on-white colorway best matches the uniforms from his days as a New Jersey Net when Kidd got his first peek at the Finals, and you can see more of this Japanese favorite when you click below. Let us know how these have held up a decade and a half after their debut and if you wanna get in on the unique look before they hit Nike Sportswear retailers, get with Air-Randy.
