What’s old is new again, thanks to two upcoming models inspired by a classic Nike basketball sneaker.
The Nike Air Zoom Flight 95 is set to return later this month in three premium styles, including “Pearl Pink,” “Mushroom” and “Black/Sail” looks.
Priced at $160 each, these premium Air Zoom Flight 95 styles feature leather uppers with perforated overlays and translucent outsoles.
While the materials may be new, the sneaker’s definitive “bug eyes” design on the Zoom Air midsole remains true to the original.
The Air Zoom Flight 95 is notable for being one of the first sneakers to utilize Nike’s responsive Zoom Air cushioning in the ’90s. On the court, the sneaker was popularized by former NBA star and current Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd.
All three retro Air Zoom Flight 95 looks will be released on May 31.
But before the premium retro drop, the Air Zoom Flight 95 will inspire a brand-new silhouette known as the Zoom Bonafide.
Featuring a Flyknit upper with a heel zip closure atop the Air Zoom Flight 95’s signature midsole, the Zoom Bonafide will be offered in “Multicolor,” “Cool Gray” and “Black/White” styles.
The Zoom Bonafide debuted as an exclusive part of February’s “5 Decades of Basketball” collection, but this is the first time the sneaker will be available to the public.
It launches Thursday from nike.com/snkrs, with a retail price of $150.
