Sneaker of the Week: Nike Air Flight 89 Quickstrike
The cult of Nike Air Flight 89 was very pleased when the sneaker came back in masse not too long ago boasting a host of killer colorways. While it’s been kinda quiet for the silhouette in these past few weeks it looks like we’re getting a little light in the form of a super clean Quickstrike release. It’s hard not to give this model a little extra attention and since today is Friday that means we’ll just have to make it our Sneaker of The Week.
Our affinity for this shoe reaches beyond it’s familiar feeling outsole and lands squarely on the upper. The clean lines and layered overlays are simply iconic. For this pair they’ve casted it in an all-white textured leather - including ostrich and pebbled - and it's super clean. The purity of the stark white upper is compromised by big bold block numbering signifying the year that these gems were released.
According to reports, this white hot drop is set to hit European retailers on Sept. 4. As you're reading this, they are probably sold out. There's no word on when Nike will bring these sought-after kicks to the U.S.
