Time to sacrifice goats to pay homage to the sneaker gods. Yep, the Nike Air Flightposite ‘Carbon Fiber’ is dropping this month. After years of a rumored release the carbon fiber-esque goodness is officially on the horizon. It’s almost a big enough release to make me forgive Nike for those Flightposite Exposed turds. Almost.
The shape of the shoe is still pretty close to the last big release of Flightposites in 2007, but there’s been a slight tweaking of the medial side of the sole. Also, the upper isn’t really constructed of true carbon fiber but c’mon son. For that to happen the price would have to jump an extra $200 just to cover production costs. I’ll settle for a close lookalike. In the meantime, enjoy the detailed pics and let the post-Valentine’s Day thirsting over kicks begin a little early.
The Nike Flightposite ‘Carbon Fiber’ releases February 22nd.
