This is the Nike Air Zoom Flight The Glove "Heat" which features a university red, black, dark grey, and tour yellow color way. This color way represents Gary Payton's time with the Miami Heat from 2005-2007. It took 16 years and a 5th NBA team for Payton to finally win an NBA Championship with Miami alongside a young Dwayne Wade and aging Shaq. The Nike Zoom Flight '98 aka "The Glove" was a revolutionary basketball footwear design in 1998. Payton was a master at defense and his nickname was "The Glove", so Nike designed the shoe drawing inspiration from hand gloves and their perfect fit. It featured the "Monkey Paw" technology that was developed for the Flight 98's quality of fitting like "a glove" and was the first shoe to feature a zipper to hide the lacing. Today we've seen several models feature similar designs such as the Nike Flightposite and the new Air Jordan XX8 (28). The interior of the shoe features the Exoskeleton design, which used molded skeleton-like inserts to maintain stability on the upper. True sneaker heads know "The Glove" and what it did for basketball shoe design, now you will have the opportunity to own it yourself in this Miami Heat championship colors.
