Although the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have now been postponed to at least the Summer of 2021 due to COVID-19, we will still be seeing some Olympic-inspired colorways of select footwear releasing this Summer. Nike’s newest basketball silhouette will soon be releasing in a brand new colorway—the Nike Air Zoom BB NXT “China”, which is rumored to be inspired by the Chinese Olympic team uniforms.
This new offering of the Air Zoom BB NXT features a White textile mesh upper, paired with Red tongues, Yellow sockliners, as well as Red to Yellow gradient Nike swoosh branding laterally. A dual Red/White React foam midsole with a Yellow forefoot TPU cage rides atop a crisp White outsole to complete the look.
Let us know what you think of the Nike Air Zoom BB NXT “China” in the comments below. According to LACEUPHK, this special edition colorway is set to release July 15th, 2020 on Nike and FlightClub China retailers. A stateside release date at this time remains unknown, as these very well may just be a China-exclusive colorway. Stay tuned for further updates.
