Nike Air Flight '89 (Eighty-Nine)
UPDATE: Lifestyle looks coming to you thank to the team at Sneaker Politics. If you haven't copped 'em yet, holler at them.
You gotta feel for the Air Flight '89. Every time a new colourway shows up, you have cats flaming it as a Jordan 4 imitator. While it's true that they're both rocking the same sole unit, both shoes dropped the same year and the '89 the preferred model of Bulls' teammate Scottie Pippen. But hell, if memory serves correct, the '89 was actually the first to hit the court! The latest quickstrike release of the '80s classic is out to set the record straight, shouting its heritage loud and proud at the rear. With hits of ostrich skin and premium leather on a clean white upper, these are a fitting release for such an overlooked model. These will be hitting select European Nike accounts on September 4th.
