Nike Zoom Hyperflight “Shanghai Shark”

As the third part of the Nike Zoom Hyperflight “China Collection” the Shark has a lot to live up to. Alongside the Lion which represents the capitol Beijing, and the Tiger tied to the city of Guangzhou, the Shanghai entry completes the triple headed natural world tribute to China’s three largest cities.

As Shanghai is both China’s largest urban population centre and historically a large trading port it makes sense that the animal used to represent the city should be a powerful creature drawn from the sea. The one piece blue/grey upper mimics the instantly identifiable skin of a shark, while the perforated instep is a nice design touch. Chrome overlays alongside aquamarine highlights keep the overall look sleek and clean, while the Chinese symbol for Shanghai located on the insole makes the designs inspiration clear.

Already available in China, the Shanghai Shark is currently scheduled to hit US retailers August 2nd.
