Sail & Navy Command The Resurgent Nike Air Flight ‘89

A clean-cut look continues the model's retro effort.

Sail & Navy Command The Resurgent Nike Air Flight ‘89

The retro run of the Nike Air Flight ’89 has flown under the radar a bit. Championing the same design language as the Air Jordan 4 it shares a release year with, the vintage basketball kicks continue to roll all the same. “Home base” for the shoe over this 2022-present span has been doubling down on its 80s origins, embracing simpler looks to emphasize its structure. That’s once again the case with its latest outfit, a blend of “Sail” & “Armory Navy.”

The eggshell hues that dominate this shoe can be seen as extension of the faux-vintage lean of recent Jordan retro drops, but more than anything, it presents a clean outfit that allows the shoe’s composition to speak for itself. Though a vast majority of the real estate on this shoe swaps between the two titular shades here, “Light Iron Ore” grey breaks up the palette by dressing the eyestays. Considering how the details on Jordan 4 releases tend to anger the purists, that camp will be satisfied with how the Air Flight ’89 is arranged: Air Flight & Nike Air branding are both held intact in its 2024 execution.

Expect the Nike Air Flight ’89 landing on Nike.com and local shelves in time for Fall ’24. A MSRP of $140 is projected; enjoy early official images below.
