The 1996 NBA Slam Dunk Contest was one for the record books. Brent Barry won the contest wearing the Nike Air Zoom Flight 95 “White Red,” which will be back for Nike in 2022.
Giving the shoe its signature look is the panels and “bug-eyes”
The pair comes in White and Red colors. The uppers are made of White leather with signature wavy stitching, and the same color runs across the toe and midsole. Next, the panels and “bug-eyes” on the midsole have a red texture that looks like carbon fiber, and the Swoosh across the toe and the heel pulls tab are also red. Lastly, Black is used on the piping, and White is used on the rubber outsole to finish the look.
If you’re a fan of basketball shoes, but not a huge fan of the modern designs from companies like Nike, this is a shoe you’ll definitely want to go check out. It brings back a lot of nostalgia and reminds us all of what changed during the mid 90s.
