Nike pays homage to its rabid Chinese fanbase, dropping an iteration of the Air Foamposite One decked out in imagery inspired by the country’s cultural heritage, dubbed “Tianjin” after the northern city renowned for its fevered basketball culture. Lotus flowers and carp decorate the sneaker’s upper, accompanied by decorative insole graphics and a salmon-hued sole unit. No word on whether the sneaker will hit retailers in the West, but the “Tianjin” sneaker is sure to kick up a fuss given its ornate upper and head-turning colorway and is set to hit Chinese retailers on February 7.
