1989’s Nike Air Flight ‘89 makes a return for 2022 after last being spotted in June of 2020 with a SuperSonics-esque colorway. Originally a Nike Basketball performance silhouette, the Air Flight ‘89 carries a recognizable retro look, especially with its sole unit that was pulled from the iconic Air Jordan 4. Nike now refreshes the Air Flight ‘89 with a “White/Black” that is accented by red, pink and gray hits.

Beginning at the upper, this colorway of the Air Flight ‘89 carries a white leather base that matches its laces and trim while being contrasted by black at the Swooshes, tongue branding, part of the sole unit and various other details. A soft pink begins at the forefoot of the midsole and wraps to the midfoot, resting atop a portion of the rubber outsole in red which matches the tongue and heel branding.

Release for this black and white colorway of the Nike Air Flight ‘89 is expected to take place in the coming months via Nike and select retailers at a price of $120 USD. Take an official look at the pair above and keep an eye out for more colorways to drop before the end of 2022.

In other Nike footwear news, an August release date for the sacai x Nike Cortez 4.0 “OG” has been revealed.
