Nike is celebrating basketball culture in China and the vast number of fans in the country, especially in the capital city of Beijing, with a new "Beijing" collection. Featuring a men's and women's Air Jordan 1 Low silhouette in "Multicolor" and the Air Foamposite One in a "Green Strike" variant.

The AJ1 Lows arrive with a galactic pattern and luminous materials in a black variation for men and all-over print for the women. The Air Foamposite One features a similar pattern across its upper along with a silver dragon totem and a glow-in-the-dark outsole. The Chinese phrase on the back says "上下四方,古往今来," which is philosophy that is derived from ancient times and the belief in the cosmos. Roughly translated it says, "Up, Down, Four Direction, Outward, In."

All three pairs release exclusively via SNKRS China tomorrow, May 22. The Air Jordan 1 for men and women will retail for ¥849 CNY (~$120 USD) while the "Beijing" Foamposites will run ¥1,749 CNY (~$246 USD). Fans of the Air Foamposite One in China are definitely spoiled, with the "Tianjin" variation releasing back in 2015.

Release Date: 5/22/20
