The beauty of a brand like Nike is that they operate on so many levels when it comes to hype. Sure you’ll satisfy the masses with Jordans and Huaraches all day long, but the sportswear giants also have a whole roster of lesser-known classics in their arsenal. With the current craze for 90s basketball, Nike have rather cleverly dipped into the archives and reissued the Nike Air Raid recently. Next up is a reworked version of another bball classic, the Nike Air Flightposite 2014 ‘Knicks’.
The '90s served as a period for glorious invention and reinvention of Nike Basketball footwear. Bold experiments in style and innovation brought us classics, with staying power. Perhaps, no sneaker better captures that sense of nostalgia than the Air Flightposite – a former hardwood classic turned urban staple that teeters the line between street and tech. This New York Knicks-inspired colourway, or White/Orange/Royal to give it its proper will be available to buy imminently at www.urbanindustry.co.uk
