Freshness: Nike Air Maestro

Nike’s hybrid theory: take a time-honored classic, adjust the tooling just a bit throw in some new-age technology, tweak the name a bit, and release it as a ‘new shoe’. For some shoes, the formula seems to wore (see: Air Max JR). For others, it’s one that’s best kept under wraps (see: Air Max-A-Lot). The upcoming Flight Maestro Plus has yet to release, but the scrutiny begins now; adapting the classic design of the Nike Air Maestro, the Flight Maestro Plus now features a visible Max Air at the heel and a re-done upper with details taken from the original, like the perforated segment on the upper, the placement of the swoosh, and the stitch panels on the heel/ankle. Four colorways of the Flight Maestro Plus are set to release – Black/White,  a NY Knicks inspired combination, White/Black/Red, and a Grey/Black/Blue – but where’s Scottie Pippen’s All-Star colorway? Check out the four upcoming colorways below and let us know what you think of this new ‘hybrid’ design. via CK.
