Nike introduces its 'Air Flightposite' sneaker in a captivating 'Topaz Mist' colorway for the season, drawing attention to the aesthetics of starry outer space. The silhouette features iridescent details that have speckles reflecting off the light to imitate the look of a group of stars.

The structure recalls the 90s and functions as a basketball model, referencing the Foamposite along with the sculptural uppers that feature the signature responsive Zoom Air-encapsulated sol unit. It also features a special zippered neoprene shroud. The lacing systems are replaced with a full-length tongue with zipper enclosures instead, wrapping around to the collar and accented with contrasting Swooshes at the vamp, the heel tap, and the tongue tab. To round out the silhouette are black ventilation pods on the side for additional breathability and it sits atop a white sole unit.
