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.
The Nike Air Zoom Flight 95 returns in its “Black Metallic” look with its nubuck upper, famed carbon fiber accents within the Zoom circles, Zoom Air cushioning, and Swoosh branding at the ankle & toe box.
