The 80 Greatest Sneakers of the '80s

48. Nike Air Flight 89

Year Released: 1989

The first shoe to bear the "Air Flight" moniker, 1989's Air Flight was available in both high- and low-top iterations, both being entirely different shoes. The low has enjoyed a proper revival over the past decade, while the high has yet to be reproduced. A shame, since the ventilated upper was one of Nike's best designs in a tremendous year.
