As the winds of fashion shift and the cycle of trends whirls around, some designs, against all odds, find their way back. Among the iconic styles that encapsulate this trend, the Nike Air Flight ’89 “Brigade Blue” stands out prominently. Following a two-year recess, the legendary silhouette made a grand re-entry towards the close of 2022, and footwear enthusiasts haven’t missed a beat since.
Having seen limited releases post its reappearance, the Nike Air Flight ’89 has garnered considerable attention, especially with the advent of the Fall season. The footwear giant isn’t just rolling out fresh shades but is also taking a reminiscent walk down memory lane. The “Brigade Blue” edition, which was first unveiled in 2015, is making a return, showcasing the brand’s knack for weaving nostalgia with innovation.
A close inspection of this edition reveals the finesse of the design. The white leather base serves as a canvas for the intricate detailing that follows. It impeccably complements the midsole and lace unit. But what captures the essence of its name is the “Dark Obsidian” hue, gracing the lateral and medial Swoosh. The “Brigade Blue” makes a stellar appearance, accentuating the speckled foxing and the embroidered Nike Air emblem on the heel.
Although whispers in the industry suggest the release date is looming, an official announcement remains pending.
