Maybe it's just the opinion of this author, but the Nike Air Flight 89 has seen its share of undeservedly bad colorways and color blockings throughout the years. However, this latest version that Nike Sportswear has whipped up does the classic basketball shoe a little more justice. 

In 'White/Hyper Blue-Wolf Grey-Black' this colorway looks much more like the OG versions that made the Air Jordan IV's brother great.  Subtle hits of elephant print and pebbled textures add a tasteful touch.  Look for this Air Flight 89 at select Nike Sportswear retailers, including online from Crooked Tongues.
