Nike Air Zoom Flight 95 Revealed in 'Black/Valerian Blue-Ale Brown'
Nike's famed Air Zoom Flight 95 is enjoying a renaissance in 2022, serving as the centrepiece of a Supreme collaboration while also returning in both beloved OG colourways and fresh new makeups created for lifestyle wear. It's a pair that falls in the latter category that's in the spotlight today: a new 'Black/Valerian Blue-Ale Brown' style has been revealed.
Though the Air Zoom Flight 95 is far from its heyday as a performance sneaker rocked on NBA courts by Jason Kidd, Brent Barry and others, it still looks futuristic thanks to its signature 'bug eyes,' circular detailing on its midsole that's done up in black here. The upper follows colour suit with a black leather-and-nubuck construction that serves as a staging ground for the rich 'Valerian Blue' and 'Ale Brown' embellishments that give the shoe its name. Hits of blue that are cleverly worked into the outsole and laces round off the look.
At the time of writing, we have yet to receive an official release date for the Air Zoom Flight 95 'Black/Valerian Blue-Ale Brown,' but it'll likely be hitting the Nike webstore and Swoosh stockists in the coming weeks.
