11 Defining Moments in Nike’s Lightweight Basketball Shoes

Nike Air Flight Lite Hi II

Released: 1992
Weight: 13.5 oz

Following the release of the aforementioned, highly-successful Nike Air Flight Lite Hi, Nike returned the next year with the improved Nike Air Flight Lite Hi II. This shoe kept the extremely lightweight, high-top construction (1.5 ounces lighter) and unmatched cushioning aspects; however, Nike improved on the fit by incorporating a stripped down and better fitting Huarache style inner sock. Players such as A.C. Green wore this shoe during the 1991-92 NBA season.
