    do not recommend it

    tech in it is old and the modern tech (flyknit) do not provide enough upper support, lack of laces also hinders lockdown

    not all old designs are bad. the jordans from 97-98 still can hold up with today's latest soles.

    the 95/96 flights weren't great for ball to begin with

    True, there's always exceptions, like those Js. One off the top of my head I'm guessing would be the air go lwp. Can still compete with todays tech. And they came out before these Kidd abominations.

    Meant more to say 95 flights in particular were awful: bad traction, clunky, the opposite of responsive. I don't care if it was one of the first to use zoom air it still sucked as a basketball shoe. Don't know why anyone would want to base a new shoe off those.

    agreed.

    I did enjoy the zoom flight five that came out the next year. Granted I got em for $29.99 at the outlets. The good old days of discounted Nikes.

    I loved the 95 flights for playing in, I don't know wtf you guys are talking about. Maybe my memory just sucks.

    a lot of the guys I played with had the 95 flights and the 95 uptempos. superior designs, but not great performers.
