The Nike Zoom Flight 98 “Glove” is the first shoe to use a full length zipper, which took Nike to a whole new level. Nicknamed “The Glove” for two reasons: The nice fit on your foot that resembled a glove and Gary Payton’s nickname is the glove. And yes, the Zoom Flight 98 was worn by GP. Another first for the Zoom Flight 98 is the monkey paw structure which helps prevent ankle inversion. If anything, the Nike Zoom Flight 98 “The Glove” were made more for playing Ball then a fashion statement.
