Over exposed: Air Flightposite
Why mess with a good thing by complicating it? Nike took to revamping and reintroducing another retro '90s basketball sneaker, the Air Flightposite - but instead of amping up its construction, the brand simplified it. Removing the zipper and incorporating a full lace-up closure makes for a more streamlined look and customized fit. Originally launched in 1999, these sneakers were modeled after the sleek design and impressive speed of futuristic concept cars, making them fitting footwear for both on and off the court.
Still, the swoosh lords did decide to spice up the style a bit this time around. The absence of a zipper made room for a brazen colorway, including a sleek silver zebra print across the entire upper, a red-splashed sole and lining and jet black laces. Snag them at JimmyJazz.com or in stores Oct. 26 for $210.
Are you psyched about the updated closure on these kicks?
