There's a new model from Nike Sportswear, dubbed the Flight Squad, that updates some of the upper lines from the iconic Flight '89 for a more streamlined and sleek look.

As the model begins to roll out, one of the first themed versions executed atop the shoe's canvas is this "Flight Jacket" theme. With hits of olive brushed nubuck, orange collar accents, a removeable tongue patch and black midsole framing, there are some obvious comparisons to past jacket inspired sneakers to be made.

Nonetheless, this Premium QS edition of the Flight Squad is arriving now at overseas retailers like Mita.
