The OG Nike Air Zoom Flight 95 “Black Metallic” Returns This Year

Luis Torres

Nike Basketball is bringing back a classic.

The Nike Air Zoom Flight 95, famously worn by Jason Kidd during his rookie season with the Dallas Mavericks, solidified a new era for the Swoosh on the hardwood. The mid to late ’90s witnessed tech revolutions that birthed countless classics, the Zoom Flight 95 included.

And while Kidd wasn’t the only one wearing the Zoom Flight 95 back in the day, Nike’s legendary “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” commercial (as well as print ads) made the Eric Avar creation and the Mavericks point guard nearly one and the same.

Last seen in 2015 for its 20th anniversary, Nike is bringing back the fan-favorite Zoom Flight 95 in its OG colorway.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
