Put cha Foams away cos the Flights are flyer, and Nike are starting 2014 by unleashing this special Year of the Horse rendition from their stable. Nike chose the Flightposite as the silhouette to work with because they saw a resemblance to a horse in motion in it – can you see that? Whether you can or can’t doesn’t really matter though, because the resulting shoe is totally fresh, a gorgeous shining azure colour covers the Posite panels with a shimmering calligraphy pattern positively beaming from everywhere. The lace dubre also features a Chinese idiom translating to ‘with the arrival of the horse comes great success’, wishing y’all the best for the year. Good fortune footwear, we can get down with that. These will drop on January 9 next year.
