The Nike Air Flight 89 Enjoys Summer In “Light Bone”

A gem from the late 1980s, the Nike Air Flight 89 continues to appear in new styles 34 years after its debut.

Recently, the Air-assisted silhouette has emerged in a “Light Bone,” “Olive,” and “Gum” color scheme. The bulk of the upper replaces traditional leather with a mix of fabric panels that reduces weight. Mesh panels peek out at the collar and tongue, with suede swaths landing on the top of the tongue and profile swooshes. The Air Jordan 4-reminiscent sole unit underfoot keeps things simple and on-theme with various shades of white and brown. Together, each aforementioned component works together to create a compelling summer-appropriate style for the old school basketball sneaker.

Enjoy retailer photography of the pair ahead, and anticipate a nike.com launch soon.

In related sneaker news, dozens of Air Jordan releases are still on schedule for the rest of 2023.
