This colorful retro take on the outdoor basketball staple has a black and dark grey base that sets the table for a multicolored pattern that wraps the entire midsole and is also seen on the tongue.

The newest model to a growing arsenal of Jordan Brand retro hybrid creations is the Air Jordan Flight Remix. Using features predominantly from the V and XX2 with hints of the AJ XV, the first release of the Air Jordan Flight Remix will be a black/vibrant yellow-cool grey drop. Features from the AJ V are probably the most obvious to the eyes of early Jordan Retro lovers. The mid foot web sits in the middle of the upper below the unmistakeable ankle support of the V and the iconic 3M tongue. From the XX2 the Air Jordan Flight Remix uses the accented stitching pattern and heel plate inspiration, as well as the general shape of the silhouette. And last but not least, the rubber strip up the heel and toe box shape are taken from the XV. The shoe’s midsole is a new look from Jordan, not seen on any of the three models used to blend the Remix but it does include a V inspired design “teeth” design on the icy outsole.
The Air Jordan Flight Remix “Vibrant Yellow” drops Wednesday, July 26th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and at Footlocker.com for $ 160.
