Nike Air Flight 96
Nike Air Flight Mid basketball shoe debuts fall 1996 for 96-97 season.
This shoe that could accurately be dubbed Nike Air Flight 96 is the takedown version of Penny Hardaway's original 1996 Nike Zoom Flight 96. Key differences include Air cushioning instead of the then brand new Zoom Air and no carbon fiber on the upper or sole.
Air Flight 96 was common among second tier NBA guards in 96-97 including Damon Stoudamire. Even future Hall of Famer Jason Kidd, who had Zoom cushioned signature shoes in two of his first three pro seasons after sharing Rookie of the Year honors, wore Air Flight 96 on occasion.
