Nike revisits the Air Zoom Flight 95, returning to the OG colorway famously worn by Jason Kidd in 1994 during his debut rookie season in the NBA.

Recognized for its futurist, avant-garde silhouette, the Air Zoom Flight 95 features orb-like cutouts across the leather “Black Metallic” checkered upper, accented by a metallic silver midsole and outer sole. Eric Avar designed the silhouette as a vehicle to advance the then-Mavericks point guard, Jason Kidd, using the Zoom Air cushioning as a base for lateral spring and dynamic on-court maneuvering. Avar has also worked on Nike’s Kobe 9 Elite silhouette utilizing the Flyknit technology as a structural symbiosis of “science and art.”

Named a personal favorite by sneakerhead Hanni El Khatib, the OG silhouette last dropped during its 20th Anniversary in 2015 and again in 2017 in various neutral-toned iterations with contrast piping across the nubuck upper.

Along with previous models, the cursive “Flight” logo is embroidered across the heel tab, and a metallic and all-black Nike Swoosh appears at the heel and toe cap, accompanied with forward-stitching throughout. Black-and-white speckled laces complete the set.

Shop the new set at Nike’s official website later this spring, listed at $160 USD.
