Nike’s new Air Jordan Fly ’89 may be a throwback to that magical day in NC that Michael Jordan scored the championship game-winning shot at UNC to make history and catapult him to the forefront of basketball greatness, but these are definitely not your daddy’s Air Jordan’s.
When Michael Jordan showed up to the big game in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, the world had no clue they would never look at athletic shoes the same way again. Nike’s line of Air Jordan shoes was a hit then and are still a hit today. Whether you actually loved the sport or not, every dude has wanted a pair of Air Jordan’s at one point in their life.
The Jordan Fly ’89 shoes, selling for a budget-friendly $110, are inspired by the Air Jordan IV, but with a more modern flair. These sleek, ultra-lightweight shoes come in solid black (with a white sole), offer a minimal design, and a snug, custom, sock-like fit for exceptional comfort whether you’re on the court, hitting the gym, or walking to your favorite bar in the city.
The authentic Air Jordan style is further upheld with the AJIV-inspired wings and enhanced lace loops lockdown. The sleek look adds confidence to your step while the Lunarlon midsole cushioning delivers a soft, responsive feel for work or play.
