A little history for ya: this colorway of the Nike Air Flight One was one of the sneaker models worn by Penny Hardaway during his first two seasons of his NBA career before he embarked upon the Nike Air Penny signature line, but some may associate this Air Flight One (this exact colorway, to be more precise) to Michael Jordan. Why? During a game in the Second Round of the 1995 NBA Playoffs, Michael Jordan, who rocked the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’, was forced by the NBA brass to switch to an all-black shoe in accordance with league uniform rules. He didn’t have a pair of the Space Jams handy, so for one game, he had no choice but to borrow a pair from Penny’s closet and wear the Nike Air Flight One in the same colorway (we have a picture for you below).

Of course, one of Michael’s trademark characteristics is is homicidal competitiveness, so he went as far as chopping off the ‘1’ heel-tab of the borrowed pair. With the Air Flight One returning earlier this year, that story of MJ rocking the Flight One rushed back into our memories, and we’ll be able to re-live them this October as they are slated for a drop. A full shot as well as some classic in-game shots of MJ and Penny wearing this colorway of the Flight One below, so take a look and let us know what you think. Photos: ix_eleven
