The last of the Air Flightposite series is the Nike Air Flightposite III, and it might as well be renamed as the “Forgottenposite”; this classic design from the famed Alpha Project has yet to be re-released, although a rare spotting during the 2012 All-Star Weekend on the feet of Flightposite ambassador Allan Houston could hint at a possible return (and considering the Flightposite 1 and II made a come-back, a III wouldn’t be much of a surprise). Like the previous two Posite installments, the Air Flightposite III is noted for one major design feature, and for the III it’s clearly the alien-esque bug-eye pods on the upper that act as lockdown tiers for the upper strap and lower harness. To Mache Customs, the funky-lookin’ protrusions always reminded him of Spiderman’s eyes, so he took this pristine pair of the Flightposite III and gave it a radioactive treatment by coloring it with reds and blues and adding the web-like graphic on the toe.
