Following last week’s light blue “Chicago” iteration of the Air Flight ‘89, Nike is back with yet another take on the silhouette, this time in “Black/Orange Blaze” with bold elephant print accents.

Starting at the top of the shoe, red “AIR” branding is embroidered at the tongue over textured mesh fabrics that also appear at the collars and heel. The sneakers are mostly dominated by thick all-black leather uppers, except for scaly gray elephant prints that show up along the upper Swoosh and large panels at the mid-section — resembling that of an elephant’s ear flaps. Etched at the shoe’s heel counter is “Nike Air” in an emerald green palette, matching the tinted Air Unit bubble at the midsole. As a final touch, the sneaker’s black midsole is complemented by a thin red outsole, offering a striking contrast to the blacked-out color scheme.

The Nike Air Flight ‘89 “Black/Orange Blaze” will be available at sneakersnstuff’s website on February 7, 5 a.m. EST for $153 USD. They’ll also drop at other Nike accounts, like Foot Locker, the same day.

In other footwear news, Nike has delivered an Air Force 1 “City of Dreams” that celebrates Chicago’s ties to basketball.
