Ronnie Fieg Debuts Never-Before-Seen Nike Sneakers

Although no additional details were provided, Instagram commenters were quick to point out the similarities to the Nike Air Maestro Flight 1 (pictured below), an early ’90s basketball sneaker made famous by former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen. Despite the apparent similarities, the sneakers shared by Fieg appear to be a new model altogether.
