OG colorway, huh? This was a HOH exclusive from a few years ago, based on the White Men Can't Jump poster. Research fellas, research. 30 seconds on Google before you write.

Awesome to see a pair from one of the later production runs. That's when Nike started adding that nylon cover around the raw rubber and elastic of the tongue.

I misread. There actually is a stamp on the shoe tag. My apologies Brendan.

That's CLEARLY not the box for those shoes. They're a size 13.5 white/black and the box is for a black/red size 13
That looks like what would happen if the Shaqnosis & Kamikaze had a kid. Then the Trainer Max 2 & Huarache Trainer 94 had a kid. And then those kids met and had a kid. That design is all over the place!!

Brendan, not sure if anybody has caught this yet, but the non-snake parts of the sides are 3M. If you can get them to, have them shoot a pic with flash. Completely changes my opinion of the shoe (for the better).

Man, it's been a while since I've been forced to comment on a story or its total lack of research. The title of this article (before it gets changed) is "Nike Zoom Sonic Flight Retro.". You don't really think that's a retro do you? Yes, there was a shoe in the early/mid 90's called the Air Sonic Flight, which was a mid-level basic hoop shoe. A take down of sorts for the Flight Lite/Solo Flight/Air Bound. That isn't it. Not even close. This one is very clearly a new Payton mash up a la the Spizike, 1/2 Cent & Zoom Rookie. Once again, step your research game up.

Why do you guys at Sneaker News give so much love to Corporate, and absolutely none to Unheardof? They've been in the game longer and the inventory is just as good, aside from Jr's.

Yeah, they definitely are an OG Nike design. Google is your friend.

You and me both, man. My best friend had the black ones in school, and I always wanted them.

That doesn't even make sense in this situation, just like your interpretation of my first comment. In the words of Inigo Montoya "I do not think that means what you think it means." I'm not entirely sure why you felt the need to get involved in something that was none of your concern to begin with. Not that I need to explain to you any further, but that first comment was left to make sure the proper site (whether my name was attached or not) got credit for providing the pics...and it got the job done, didn't it? The edit was made, I got an acceptable response from an admin, and responded in kind with thanks. I'm done arguing with some anonymous internet handle. Enjoy your Missions.
Thanks for your response Brendan. I appreciate the explanation. You guys have always been great about giving credit when necessary. My last response wasn't directed at you/SN, but more towards the smart arse talking about patting myself on the back, and explaining my original comment.
It's not about patting myself on the back. It's about being respectful. If you're going to use pics from another site, give credit to the person or website that provided the info. Don't just take it, crop the pics in an effort to make them look different, and pass them off as your own. There's a reason they edited and put the credit up there.
You're welcome for the pics. Don't worry about crediting me or NT for those.
Nice to see my pair of Military IV's made it into the pictures haha.

SN writers, PLEASE step your research game up. These ARE an OG colorway. In fact, they are the most famous of the OG colorways. Only a handful were made, and in the 90's a pair was sold in Japan for something crazy like $24,000. Due to their rarity, these were one of the OG bootlegs as well. They were SO rare, that even bootlegs were cracking triple digits when they showed up on the secondary market. Though I believe the gold glitter/clear sole is a new addition.

@NuttyKicks @jshortt @Bape_kid
Thank you. The only other color that got released was the red patent which was an overseas colorway. If anybody has info that would prove us wrong, I'd welcome it.

@Bape_kid If it did, it sure wasn't in the US. We got 3 colors here. Black/White/Gold, White/Red/Gold, and Navy Patent/White/Gold.
Yeah, definitely NOT an OG colorway. Beautiful shoe nonetheless.
You guys keep reporting that these are "supposedly" a Celtics colorway and then list something that is supposed to be a clue like the "clover" color, but keep ignoring the most obvious part...the fact that the pattern on the leather was put there to look like the parquet floor of the Boston Garden. I'd say that's pretty much all you need to see to confirm it's a Celtics tribute.

C'mon guys, that white/blue/orange pair is CLEARLY a nod to Kemp's time with the Cavaliers. Do some research.

Actually, in this case all "Vintage" means is that they didn't paint the midsole white (which they started around 2002). They left the foam raw, just like they did back in the day. Pro: No paint cracking. Con: They get dirty easier and are impossible to clean. Be careful what you wish for.

@HeGotShoeGame11 That's the way shoes used to come straight out of the box. Nike didn't start factory lacing shoes til the late 90's/early 2000's. I personally unlace mine to prevent the leather from buckling or getting misshaped due to the tightness of the factory lace job.
