An Official Look at the Nike Flightposite ‘Racer Blue’

An official look at the Nike Flightposite in ‘Racer Blue’.

The Nike Flightposite was an awesome shoe when it originally released back in 1999. Foamposite material was cool and innovative, zippers on shoes were totally in, and they were much lighter than the Foamposite One and Pro.

While the Retro version of the shoe features all of those things, it’s missing the medial rubber that is supposed to wrap up and around the Posite material. Unfortunately, this kills the entire look of the sneaker; they still look amazing from the lateral side but they look unfinished along the medial.

However, tech specs remain the same as they once were: Foamposite build, zipper enclosure, internal PU insole with embedded heel and forefoot Zoom Air units.

If you were interested in grabbing the upcoming Nike Flightposite in ‘Racer Blue’ then they’ll release at Nike Sportswear retailers on March 2 for $220.

  1. Could we see a video review of these, please? I would like to know if the quality has changed any since 2015. I would also like to know how these fit. I have a pretty wide foot, but not quite an E width. Most of my shoes are size 11, but I am measured right about a 10 1/2. I don’t like my shoes to pinch my foot. I know zippers don’t tend to not zip up on shoes due to my wide foot and high in step. What size would be recommended? 11 usually fits perfectly, but I have heard these run narrow and small. I have been wanting a pair of Flightposite’s since 99 when I was in high school. Just could never afford until now.
