Nike Air Zoom Flight The Glove – Black / White / University Red Release Date

The Jordan XX8 wasn’t the first Nike basketball shoe to feature a shroud. Back in 1998 the Seattle Supersonics star guard Gary Payton was going about his work in what’s now known as the Air Zoom Flight The Glove. As Payton is about to be welcomed into the Naismith Hall of Fame (and anyone who saw him play will know just how deserved that recognition is) Nike will be releasing this court classic once again.

The colorway in question features clean, simplistic color blocking as the majority of the shrouded upper is dressed in black, with contrasting white highlights. Small doses of university red are located on the heel pull tab, graphic overlay hidden under the shroud, and outsole bottom.

Look for the Glove to make it’s long awaited comeback this October 5th, priced at $145 from select NSW accounts.

  1. You state that the gloves will be available around October in nsw…..know you do mean nsw in Australia…right?
    Now I’ve actually called Nike Australia in Sydney…been to Nike stores and to footlocker and they don’t have a release date and reckon they probably won’t even get them….so…I really want a pair as I had some back in the day….but where would I get them?
