Kicks on Cards: The Weekly Collection Featuring the Nike Air Flightposite III
words // Zack Schlemmer
If you read the introduction caption for this post on the main page, you read it correctly: In this week's Kicks on Cards collection we have Rasheed Wallace not wearing Air Force 1's. You have to go pretty far back to spot Sheed in something other than his signature Air Force 1 High, and we find it here with a rookie Sheed in the Nike Air Wayup. Along with the Air Max Uptempo III, the Wayup is one of the few shoes you'll find pictures of young Rasheed wearing before he switched to the Air Force 1 for good.
Next up is Jason Terry, high socks and all in the Nike Air Flightposite III. The third Flightposite from 2001, the Flightposite III featured a full Foamposite upper with large "bug eye" panels and a magnetic buttoned closure above the laces. Terry is seen here in a dope white, red and black colorway to match his Atlanta Hawks uniform.
Kevin Garnett makes an appearance this week, in one of the all-time best Jordan Brand team shoes, the Jumpman Pro. Two more cards finish out the usual five-card collection with former Utah Jazz player and current coach Tyrone Corbin in a rare pair of New Balance basketball shoes, and Blazer great Jerome Kersey in the always-classic Nike Air Flight 89.
