Not only has Nike cooked up a special sneaker pack in conjunction with this year’s FIBA Basketball World Cup in Beijing, but the brand also introduces a complementary range of China Hoop Dreams apparel. According to Nike, the collection crosses basketball style lines, featuring design elements from in-game gear as well as streetwear.
Basketball is more than just a game in China, as it is also an avenue for individuals to showcase their stylistic influences and incorporate hoops attire into everyday outfits. Blending the lines between performance apparel and streetwear, Nike’s China Hoops Dreams capsule includes a T-shirt with a cityscape-inspired collage on the chest, a tank top and shorts decorated in a gray-scaled version of the collection’s pattern, and a Nike Sportswear hoodie with a modified jock tag on the pouch pocket.
Nike is releasing the China Hoops Dreams apparel in Greater China beginning August 8.
