Nike Zoom Flight ‘The Glove’ (KICKS)

Drop a dime in Gary Payton’s signature sneakers.

Nowadays, when someone mentions former Seattle SuperSonics superstar point guard Gary Payton, it usually revolves around his tireless pursuit to bring an NBA team back to the city of Seattle. What you don’t often hear is how great his signature sneakers with Nike were back in the ’90s. Of the gems Payton wore on court, all pail in comparison to the Zoom Flight “Gloves.” The OG model is set for a comeback this year.

Returning in nostalgic monochromatic coloring, the Nike Zoom Flight ’98, also know as “The Glove,” remains true to its original form with overlaying white sleeve and black Swoosh branding on the exterior. The interior features neon green accents alongside customary additions like the “1.5 Articulation” embroidery and famous “Monkey Paws.” The shoe is slated to hit Nike Sportswear retailers this coming fall. Will you be picking up a pair?

    Definitely going to cop a couple pair. Haven’t said that about a shoe ever.

    Nostalgia in full effect!

    I had the black ones and they were by far one of the best shoes I ever had to play in, I’m buying these for sure!

    I still got the Carolina Edition stacked on my shelf, from back in the day… these ones look like a definite cop.

    I hope the black ones are going to be released too. If the quality is there, I’ll cop a pair. I’ve just seen the red AJ IVs in Foot Locker, and they unfortunately are like some cheap knock-offs.

    Had these in black when I was 7…classics

    Damn.

  • RayJr

    Yes AND Yes! I can see we all agree that Nike should also re-release the black colorway too.
