FROM COURT TO CULTURE. From hardwood to asphalt, the Nike Air Flight 89 EMB takes you back to late-'80s hoops style with its retro colors, crisp leather overlays, and extended strap on the side. Celebrating the legendary Rucker Park, where b-ball became part of city life, it features the zip code of the park embroidered on the heel. Stylish trim piping and a b-ball Dubre on the laces combine with the soft cushioning of Nike Air to create an off-court ride that's as fresh as it was 30 years ago.
The nearly 1-to-1 reissue features crisp leather that has a slight sheen while orange accents nod to the indistinguishable crossover between on-court and off-court styles.
"10039" is embroidered on the heel, celebrating the legendary Rucker Park where b-ball legends and off-court fashion became twined.
Originally designed for performance hoops, Nike Air cushioning provides lightweight comfort.
'80s-era over-branding is tasteful and comes through multiple Swoosh designs, “AIR Flight” and Nike logos.
The padded, mid-height collar feels soft and comfortable.
