The Nike Basketball RISE Collection is inspired by the insight that outdoor basketball is predominant style of play in China.
As a nod to the outdoor play, Nike Basketball has their own outdoor oriented signature collection from Nike that includes signature shoes for LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving. Each shoe is designed for strength, durability and breathability in all weather conditions and for a variety of surfaces.
RISE 2015 officially kicked off on May 21. Basketball-loving kids have been invited to participate in the draft phase online and offline. Only 30 players will be selected during an 11-city tour, June 20 to June 28. Nike athletes Davis, Irving, Bryant and James will join RISE 2015. They will head to RISE-themed courts in Hong Kong, Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai, respectively. They will train the selected players, with the first episode of the 2015 RISE docu-dram broadcasted in early July.
Nike will also launch RISE-themed products in the RISE COLLECTION, which includes KYRIE 1, Zoom LeBron Soldier IX, Kobe Venomenom 5, KD Trey5 III and RISE T-shirts.
