Nike Zoom Air Flight 95 x Supreme: Futuristic Sneaker with a Streetwear

Nike Zoom Air Flight 95 x Supreme: Futuristic Sneaker with a Streetwear

May 28, 2022

When it debuted in 1995, Nike’s Zoom Air flight was a generation-defining silhouette. It was instantly identifiable thanks to its famous bug-eyed sole. It has made several comebacks in 2007, 2015, and now again in 2022.

Nike is giving it a major boost with two collabs. Canadian rapper Drake was recently seen sporting a new never-seen-before Nike Zoom Flight 95 to a Toronto Raptors game. This could potentially be another NOCTA release but nothing is confirmed so far.

Another high-profile collab is with Supreme, the famous American lifestyle brand. The Supreme collaboration has three beautiful bandana-themed colorways: black, blue, and beige. You can shop Nike Zoom Air Flight 95 x Supreme at Sole Seriouss, the best online sneaker store. The sneakers drop on 5 May within the United States and on 7 May in Japan. Supreme, the streetwear behemoth, in the past too, has dabbled with Nike’s through the Air Max 96s, SB Dunk Highs and Lows, and Air Force 1s. This time, it takes the obscure Nike Zoom Air Flight 95 out of the shadows and lends it a streetwear style.  

Flashback to the OG Nike Air Zoom Flight 95

When Nike released the Air Zoom Flight in 1995, it attracted attention for its boldest and most distinct design feature, the bug-eyed carbon fiber circles on its midsoles. Also, it was the first to officially introduce the signature Zoom Air cushioning technology. Actually, this cushioning had been utilized as “Tensile Air” in its 94 release Air Go LWP. A catchier name was applied and the new cushioning system was officially presented in Air Zoom Flight 95. Its iconic ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’ TV commercial and ‘phone number’ print advertisement were an instant hit with the public. But, what gave it a boost was its association with Jason Kidd, a then-rising basketball superstar who played for the Dallas Mavericks. Juan Howard wore it during the 1996 NBA All-Star game and Brent Barry during his victory in that year’s Slam Dunk Contest.

What’s so special about the Zoom Flight 95 was that it was a shoe ahead of its time then. Even now, it looks futuristic and will continue to remain so for another two decades down the road.
