Kicks on Peter’s feet: Nike Shaolinquan’s (Mandarin for “Martial Arts”)
Via wushukicks: Nike respects the past and represents the future with its new innovative spin on footwear for Wushu. Nike gained important insight from several world-class athletes and coaches. The result is the very light and supportive Shaolinquan, Mandarin for Martial Arts. It is premium crafted footwear, designed to blend functional excellence with simple, stylistic beauty. Weighing a mere 4.75 oz, the Shaolinquan shoe is constructed from a rich, premium kangaroo leather and includes a modified herringbone pattern, which optimizes traction between the athletes’ feet and Wushu mats. A soft, flexible, lightweight gum rubber outsole was created to allow for better pivoting on the forefoot. The shoes have a pocket on them to tuck laces into and extra short aglets for safety. On one side of the shoe is the character “Wu,” which means military in Chinese. On the back of the shoe is lettering that, when translated, says “Hero inside. Release it.”
Check out their kicks…on their feet and in the air! 🙂
Peter & Phillip will be at the 366daysofkicks celebration on January 4th! Hope to see you there! Flyer is below.
