My dad bought me a pair of white/green Nike Air Flight's for my midget high school basketball season. This was back in 94, 95, or 96 (can't remember). They were the best pair of shoes I've worn, E-V-E-R. Light, good traction, comfortable. What I missed about those days is that the shoes had a wider footprint. I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that these shoes lasted me all the way until university.

Here's a challenge: Please post a picture of these shoes.

I've been searching for a picture of these shoes but can't find them.

It's responsive but not zoom air responsive. Good flex and breathability, much better than other basketball shoes under $100. I'm willing to bet it'll be a huge stepup from the shoe you are wearing now.

I've been trying to find these shoes that I bought sometime around 2001-2003. They were Nike Air Max Basketball shoes but I still can't find a picture of them. They had Rubber/Vinyl removable straps across the laces.

lol then it'd be a step down because the court feel of the VI isn't on any adidas shoe. If i had the grinches, I wouldn't wear them for ball, too rare.

Yeah they are a great shoe but ive grown out of them. I like going for fancy shoes. are the adipures very bouncy cause i got alot of bounce from the the kobes and im only like 3 cm off dunking. P.s my vert leap is 82.

Trying to get these babies.

These are the Air Jordan XI Bred AKA Space Jams in red. Jordan wore these Space Jams during 1996 because he was fined for wearing the blue and white space jams because they weren't part of the team colour code.

I always collect and never wear jordans. Hardly anyone would wear a $500 rare shoe.

Where were you when they retroed a few years back? People usually buy one pair for collection and one for wear.

I didn't want the 2008 Retro'd version. They are made out of cheaper material. I want the 2001 Retro'd shoe which now runs around $400-$500.

Does anyone know of a reliable website where you can order/buy old Jordans? I looked around on nike.com but the pairs I want don't seem to be available for purchase. They just have pics of them.
