Nike Brings Back the Air Flight 89 in OG Black/White

Celebrating the thirtieth year of Nike Flight, the Nike Air Flight 89 has returned in the Black/White colorway that was a staple for pretty much every basketball sneaker of the era. Known originally as the Nike Air Flight, the shoe utilized the same tooling as the Air Jordan IV following the move done by the Air Revolution that shared the same midsole/outsole as the Air Jordan III.

The introduction of the Nike Air Flight was the dawn of the divide within Nike Basketball that built a separate line of products, Flight and Force, geared towards the faster players on the court while the bigger men who battled it out beneath the basket wore the Nike Force. Similar to the Nike Air Max III and Nike Air Max 90, the Nike Air Flight adopted the year model to the name once the retros were introduced about a decade after their initial debut.

The Nike Air Flight 89 is available now at Nike for $120.
