I have to admit I was a bit thrown back when I saw these. But when Nike releases something, they have to make sure it stands out and these sneakers sure do!
These sneakers were released as part of the Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Dwueen Ng Festival. It was the first sneaker to celebrate this ancient Chinese Festival and it was only available across selected stores in Hong Kong and China.
These sneakers were woven green and white colors with dragon stitched inside the soles. It looks pretty cool and shows that Dragon Boat is getting recognised by the multi-national corporations. Lets hope there will be some more gear, e.g shirts and padded shorts released by Nike in the near future!
