Nike is bringing back the Air Flight ’89 this year

by Ferano Sharman

The Air Flight ’89 from Nike, which was last seen in June of 2020 in a SuperSonics-inspired colorway, is back for 2022. The Air Flight ’89, which was originally a Nike Basketball performance silhouette, has a recognized retro¬†aesthetic, notably thanks to its sole unit, which was taken from the enduring Air Jordan 4. Nike has updated the Air Flight ’89 in “White/Black” with red, pink, and gray accents.

The Air Flight ’89 in this colorway has a white leather base on the upper, matching the laces and trim, and black accents on the Swooshes, the tongue branding, a portion of the sole unit, and other elements. A part of the rubber outsole is red, matching the tongue and heel marking, and starts at the forefoot of the midsole and wraps to the midfoot.

The Nike Air Flight ’89 in this black and white colorway is anticipated to go on sale in the upcoming months for $120 USD at Nike and a few select retailers.
