Recently, Roger Federer and Nike celebrated the launch of the Zoom Vapor AJ3 at the NikeLab X158 flagship space in Shanghai.

While you may be more familiar with his on-court feats, Federer is also a big sneakerhead, and was recently spotted wearing the Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1 during a match. For Federer’s stay in Shanghai, Nike prepared a comprehensive exhibition showcasing some of the most important Chinese-centric sneaker releases from over the years, titled “Sneaker Revolution.” The retrospective touches on more than a decade of Chinese-themed sneaker drops, and spotlights Nike’s unique storytelling around traditions like Chinese New Year and more.

On top of CLOT releases like the Air VaporMax and Lunar Force 1, we also see grails like the “Tianjin” Nike Foamposite and 2016’s “NAI KE” Air Force 1s. Check out the gallery in full above.
