I don't think height is an issue with these, Nike, reebok, fila, prada, puma, adidas, they all have shoes that are VERY high, height should not be a factor for these, hell reebok retro'd the twilight zone pump and bring back and those sold out, and now their bringing back the omni zone.

Not solos, or 90.

But Sabres. 91.

Few differences but honestly, Nike has to bring back all these things.

VERY nice pair but "few differences" is an understatement!  barely anything is shared between the two besides that colorway, which was pretty common for a bunch of force/flight lines in '90/'91

Being a child of the 80's I would love to see this shoe come back again, but I would compare these to the Air Flight Lites that were retroed a few years back. Nike actually did a terrific job of recreating them(I bought up my share, especially the citron colorway), but they weren't very successful. They're still on ebay for cheap.

i used to have these flights back in the day. 

what im still wondering is how come there are models that had the cut-out in the sole that showed the air-unit and some didn't.. 
post #43 of 187
Very good question my friend . Were the comfort levels different. in the different cutouts.
post #44 of 187
I'd cop. Got my vote.

well actually read the thread and you'll understand... laugh.gif

the ones with the visible air unit are air flight '90s.  the ones without are air solo flights, the "cheaper" version back then.

Nike needs to release these in original colorways and add in some updated technology like zoom air insoles or something that way it could still be a hooping shoe and not a lifestyle
post #47 of 187
I would cop for sure.  I had these back in High School! LOVE IT!

Unless it's a fusion (and not all fusions suck) New technology in old designs is contrary to what Nike are all about.

They want us to play in the new (not so original looking) shoes with new technology, and wear the old (reproduced more for fashion than performance) designs casually.

Yeah, it sucks, but Nike are king and they can do whatever they like.

Nice assumption and I thought people were entitled to opinions. You must have thought you were the man after you posted those wack kicks. Just because something is old doesn't make them dope. Sorry to burst your bubble but the kicks you posted were wack and the cheaper version(the sole and tongue) then, and time hasn't changed things. You look foolish and young comparing those two sneakers.

Originality...lol

I can see everyone who bought a fake pair of Yeezy's and/or own(ed) a pair of skinny jeans with these on right now... unfortunately. TWO THUMBS DOWN

 I know they are the cheap versions of the Air Flights. I was not comparing them to the Solo Flights. They are different shoes.  The main thing I was referencing was the extended plastic eyelets. Not many shoes share that.

Bring 'em with the same HIGH cut and quality. The black joints with the white swoosh are ILL'n.
post #59 of 187
^^^the truth.

If quality or cut ain't the same, it's useless to retro these. There is a difference between a 2010 designed 1990 solo flight shoe and an actual retro of a 1990 solo flight shoe.

Sick, just sick Nike's, blk/wht & Wht/blue for me.
