The Nike Hyperflight has long been one of the sleekest and most modern designs that Nike has ever released in hoops, and while the original from a decade ago was known for its full-color patent flare, Nike Sportswear is livening things up even more with a few graphic and detailed theme launches releasing now in China.

Inspired by three of China's biggest cities, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing, the Hyperflight takes on tones, hues and details from each of the regions. Look for a worldwide release this August, and the "China Pack" Zoom Hyperflight Premium is already available now at Nike Sportswear accounts in China.

For a detailed look at the design inspiration that Eric Avar used to create the Hyperflight in 2001, check out our 10th Anniversary feature.
