Compared to the featherlight construction and sleek silhouettes of today's basketball sneakers, court-specific models from the 80s and early 90s seem very heavy and chunky. One of the first basketball sneakers to start this welcomed trend is the Nike Air Flight Lite High. Originally released in 1991, this popular model was the lightest basketball sneaker on the planet at the time of their release. They were famously worn by Scottie Pippen and feature a soft Phylon midsole foam, perforation details, encapsulated Air-Sole unit, and translucent panels on the outsole. You can cop the "Cool Grey" colorway at Sneakerhead today.
