Celebrity Feet: Kanye West – Nike Air Flight ’89 ‘True Blue’
Kanye West’s role as “sneaker tastemaker” has been well-documented on the interwebs since he gained mainstream notoriety with The College Dropout in 2004, and it’s risen to a point where he’s reached the holy grail of sneakerheadism – a signature sneaker. While the collective sneaker fanbase is patiently awaiting the high-end Air Yeezy 2, Kanye West was spotted sitting courtside at the Game 3 of the Knicks/Heat series at the Garden, wearing the Nike Air Flight ’89 ‘True Blue’ that recently hit stores. He and courtside-mate Ben Stiller were probably busy critiquing the game and, well, if you look below, a few other things. Check out Yeezy in the Air Flight ’89s below and stick with Sneaker News for more NBA Feet sightings! Photos :wire
These classic 89-90 jawns are so crucial. I know u you cats ain't gonna break ya necks for me to copp luv it and the hot dancer.
Damn. I was joking with my friend a couple of weeks ago saying we don't have to worry about air flights being hyped unless Kanye West or some other rapper start rocking em. And behold. Im tight. I was hoping these would sit on the shelves and I could cop when they reach $40 sale price. Now all you dick riders and hype beast are gonna go to and cop these cuz Kanye rocked em. Bunch of following ass losers. Ima cop before these pop up on ebay for $400 cuz of Kanye
Sometimes the underrated kicks can still be hot. That was always one of my favorite shoes, as a matter of fact I owned two pairs. That OG colorway is fresh.
Ain't this a bitch, one of the most underrated kicks out there. Used to be so easy to get these, not anymore. Damn you kanye and sneaker news
Ben Stiller: (thinking) I can't believe he wore those same damn pants again! Kanye: (singing in his head in his Brian McKnight voice) Let me show you how your P*ssy works! lol
I can't tell you how happy I was when I saw those on his feet- General releases are usually slept on and get very little shine from celebrities. These are fresh- salute.
i should have copped these before kanye wore them now whatever mom and pop stores had em are gonna sell out smh
I bet everybody that don't even know anything about the Flight 89s are gonna cop some now just bc Kanye had them on. TO ALL HYPE BEASTS and FAKE SNEAKER HEADS, IF IT WASN'T FOR THE AIR FLIGHT 89's there would be no Air Jordan 4's.
Nice 89's. 6's & 11 Lows looking fresh as well. *sidenote* Kanye's dresscode is horrible...same goes for the dude in the Thriller suit sitting next to him.
Yeezy has gotta stop rockin these pleather pants I seem to see him in all the damn time! Not a good look fam!
First picture: Yeezy gonna teach you ;) Second picture: Yeezy CAN teach you. But Jay Z taught you already :/
I don't own many shoes due to money but I bought these a month back, I know they aren't jordans but I really like my pair! nice to see my favourite artist enjoying them too.
i hear you man, they have released so much great stuff this year that has gone pretty much under the radar thus far, these are a perfect example of that.
I kno rite that wut i was gonna say, them sneakers been serious but everybody gonna like em now that kanye wore em
