Up next is the Chinese set within this summer's Nike Sportswear City Collection, featuring two new looks for the Lunarfly 306 and Air Footscape Woven Motion.
Colors, materials, and graphics for the the Lunarfly 306 and Footscape are drawn from China's largest city, Shanghai, for a reflection of Shanghainese culture.
The Footscape Woven Motion features a mostly goatskin upper with perforations for increased breathability. The iridescent heel tab and reflective webbing boldly channel the bright lights of Shanghainese nightlife while a traditional sole unit retains classic Nike styling. Additionally, the LunarFly 306, named in honor of the distance in miles of ultramarathons, sports a translucent, stretchable mesh upper with adjustable straps. The bold design also incorporates reflective Shanghai detailing on the tongue for an added nod to the city that inspired it.
The Shanghai City Collection launches June 13th at Nike.com and select Nike Sportswear retailers.
