Following his induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame earlier this month, former Seattle Supersonics great Gary “The Glove” Payton is set to see Nike Sportswear resurrect his fabled Air Zoom Flight as the Swoosh pays homage to the pickpocketing point guard. Originally released in 1998, the kicks have long been famous for their inclusion of a laces-hiding zippered shroud – an aesthetic that’s been applied to an accompanying take on the low-top Air Force 1 CMFT and one that comes complete with Payton’s #20 embroidered at the heel. The AF1s are set to hit Japan’s atmos this Saturday, September 21 while the Black/White-University Red version of “The Glove” is due out the following weekend. P.S. – If you’re a fan of the Air Zoom Flight “The Glove,” you’re in luck – a bevy of additional colorways are due to release over the months ahead.
