Nike has a long standing tradition of creating sneakers specifically for the millions of basketball players in the Greater China area.

The latest is the set shown above, which is again tailored to better suit the outdoor courts that so many of China's hoopers take to on a regular basis. There is the Nike LeBron Soldier 9, the Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 5, the Nike Kyrie 1, and what appears to be the next in line for the Nike KD Trey 5 takedown line.

As is usually the case with these takedown lines, the probability of the pairs here hitting stateside is low.
