In 2024, the Nike Air Flight '89 will mark its 35th year since its debut. Despite being overlooked in favor of other basketball shoes from the same period, this iconic silhouette is now demonstrating its worthiness of greater recognition.
In recent months, we've seen the Scottie Pippen-endorsed silhouette in various styles, including a collaboration with Stüssy featuring three different pairs. Unlike most Air Jordan 4 makeovers, these offerings haven't sold out immediately.
However, they are laying the foundation for an important anniversary. Recently, two kids' versions of this 34-year-old design have surfaced, both featuring mostly-tonal arrangements. One has a pitch-black look, reminiscent of a "Black Cat", while the other showcases a grayscale finish.
These options are captivating enough to win over even the most skeptical consumers, as they offer heritage in versatile packages. The different shades of grey on the silhouette may be part of a larger "Cool Grey" collection, as other Nike, Inc. pairs have also been released in similar styles. We'll have to wait and see if the grey-and-white version will also be available in adult sizes.
As of now, Nike has not revealed any specific information about the launch of nike.com. However, it is expected that this will change in the coming spring. While we wait for more details, you can take a look at the official photos of the Air Flight '89. The pricing for the Big Kid's sizing of this shoe is set at $120 USD.
