Year: 2009

Nick says: "Every once in awhile it's fun to be selfish on a project. This was that project. I'd grown up in Sacramento all my life — the Kings were obviously my squad — and the Jason Williams and Chris Webber tandem was easily the most exciting duo I'd ever watched. I took some pretty straightforward inspiration from JWill's classic Hyperflights with the glossy purple base, but the material here is actually an unmolded sheet of Foamposite, which hadn't been done up to that point. They're real loud and flashy in person, like the Hyperflight, and the story hit home even more for me, as I wore both Hyperflights and the Flight '89 on my high school basketball team, two of the shoes that blended together, along with the Zoom Glove, to make the Flight Club."
