With news that one of Nike’s greatest basketball shoes ever, the Zoom Flight 95, is set to return today at Foot Locker and arriving very soon at select Nike Sportswear retailers globally, I’m suddenly affected deeply with memories of flossing them hard 20 years ago. It was 6th grade, Mrs. Lautrup’s class – I remember it like it was yesterday. I recall finding any excuse to stand up and walk across the room to let my new Zoom Flight 95’s get their shine – sharpen a pencil, blow my nose, go to the bathroom. All in the name of  prime time stunting. Later that day, a homie of mine pointed at my kicks and said, “Yo, those are tight!” Like a plebeian dweeb, I replied back with, “Nah, they’re actually kinda loose, they fit just right.” After being met with the most “Dude…” look I had ever experienced in my pre-pubescent life, I was taught the proper use of ‘tight’ and the exact meaning of it. Hit the jump to see more detailed pics of my favorite, and tightest, sneaker of all time.
