White leather uppers feature orange trim around the large forefoot overlay and the collar, with orange Nike Air branded accents appearing on each heel. Short Swooshes are presented in black, as are top and bottom eye-stays and the tongue’s Air Flight hit. The shoe’s special embellishments are threefold: an enamel basketball lace deubre appears on the forefoot, “10039” — the Rucker’s Harlem zip code — is embroidered in black on the heel and a basketball court print is present on the insoles. White/orange midsoles and two-tone outsoles round off the look.
The Air Flight ‘89 is an undeniably apt lifestyle choice for a basketball-inspired pack; it released in 1989 alongside the Air Jordan 4 — hence the similarly-shaped midsole — and was worn on court by Basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen.
