The Nike Air Flight ’89 got the Kanye bump a few years back and has since solidified itself as a proper Nike Sportswear feature. It wasn’t until recently though that Nike decided to outfit the basketball retro in a number of lifestyle ready mockups. There was the ill-advised Yeezy creations on NIKEiD, but a Bred pair harkening back to another classic from 1989 made up for it. The whole “What are those!?” movement may have even forced Nike’s hand to further identify this sleeper hit, as a bold ’89 graphic is painted on on the heel so there’s no question which era this model came from. As for the rest of the retro, the all white aesthetic is never tiresome, with premium intentions being revealed through the use of faux ostrich leather on the side panels. This pair has already dropped in Europe and is available in U.S. now.
