Recent releases of the Nike Foamposite have consisted of solid colorways. But for its next release, the iconic Nike silhouette is getting a heavy dose of graphics.
Paying tribute to China's basketball crazed Tianjin region and the upcoming Chinese New Year, Nike makes use of traditional Chinese artwork to tell the shoe's story. Lotus flowers, fish, and an all-over fan pattern used on the eye-stay and background of the shoe are just some of the notable artwork seen throughout the sneaker. The shoe's insole and back heel also features Chinese calligraphy which translates to "Prosperity through the years."
According to Sole Collector, the shoe is being reported as a China exclusive with a release date set for Saturday, February 7. No word on a U.S. release date yet, but stay tuned in the event we're fortunate to get these Stateside.
