Nike Air Zoom Flight The Glove reawakens the 90’s b-ball heat

Retro shoes continue to tease today’s sneaker crowd, mainly those who appreciate the throwback look. Nike seems to have a heavy supply for this category, particularly basketball-oriented kicks. It puts back some of its 1990s newsmakers to create a brand new ball game for today’s hoop enthusiasts. Air Zoom Flight The Glove is one of the must-see profiles, a spinoff of Gary Payton’s 1998 Air Zoom Flight.  

This kick is one of the progressive styles imagined by Eric Avar. He’s the same person who designed other popular models that were retroed, too, such as the Air Foamposite Pro and Air Shake Ndestrukt

The Glove’s key points

  • Like other Zoom Air sneaks by Swoosh, this blast-from-the-past hardwood sensation benefits from the pressurized air cushioning for a responsive heel-to-toe movement.
  • Its zippered shroud hides the laces and allows you to customize the fit and style.
  • The Monkey Paw technology, a suction system added at the ankle, keeps the foot in place. It likewise allows room for mobility when walking, running, and bursting in multiple directions.
