Even though Kevin Garnett has left Nike, the Nike Flighposite II is back. Once known as Garnett's signature model, this "alien-looking" basketball sneaker has always been praised for its high level of comfort and performance on the court. The in-step zipper that cover the laces and carbon fiber midsole have always been their signature characteristics. Like most sneakerheads, we're very pleased that Nike has resurrected them.
Overall Rating for Nike Air Flightposite II LE
Great Basketball Shoe
Rasheem, Miami, Florida
"If you are an agile, quick guard type player, this is the best shoe of any brand you can buy. I played and coached at the college level, this shoe gave me a competitive advantage and excels at line sprints (quick stop / go) type movements. The cushioning is perfect - it feels like you get more energy out of it than you put into it. It is low to the ground and fits like a glove with excellent traction. Comfort and performance. Amazing shoe indeed. I had the black on black originals - bought 2 more after I realized how good the first pair was and now they are back! The only issue I have had with them is the zipper one one pair went out. Nike took care of it with excellent customer service and I got a new pair. Enough said."
