China has had one of the fastest growing markets in regards to the sport of basketball. Most of the sport is played on outdoor courts and recently Nike has made some adaptations to their basketball shoes to make it more fit for the Chinese balling community while keeping it relevant and useful here in the US. One great example of this is the hyperfuse, which the Nike designer says himself was designed because of Chinese kids wanting more breathability without loss of stability in their basketball shoes. That being said, some Chinese companies themselves have arisen recently and are taking advantage of the market and all the more so are marketing off the connection and obsession of Chinese kids and American athletes. Nike is therefore bringing three of the most known, based on shoes and game to China for these exclusive PE’s that are confirmed for release and selling them in connection with matching T’s. The kicks color-ways are representative of Chinese opera masks and the T’s feature the respective mask for each shoe. Air represents D-Wade, explosiveness for Melo and quick for Chris Paul. Check out all three below and let us know what you think. If interested in getting your hands on a pair let us know.
