Paying homage to the city of Shanghai’s “golden age.”

Nike Running has expanded its China-exclusive “City of Speed” pack with a new take on the Joyride Run Flyknit. Joining similarly-styled Air Max 270 Reacts, Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2s and Epic React Flyknit 2s, the new runner pays homage to the city of Shanghai with a special colorway and striking detailing.

The upper features an asymmetrical design, split between white Flyknit on the toebox and lateral side, plus a patterned black synthetic material on the medial side, heel and collar. A helping of metallic gold hits are present as well, appearing on the toebox, eystays and heel, which features a more muted hue. However, the signature detail appears directly on the tongue by way of a medallion-style black and gold badge that states “City of Speed” and “Shanghai.”

Down below, the white foam midsole presents a backwards gold Swoosh that wraps around the heel and a standard black Swoosh in its center. Unlike most other silhouettes that feature the tech, the Nike Joyride beads aren’t the main attraction, as their elegant black and white mixture is encased in icy blue heel and forefoot pods. A gold-flecked outsole completes the look.

Design inspiration is quite literal here: the gold is a nod to the spirit of Shanghai’s architectural “golden age,” paying homage to multiple generations of the city. This even extends to the packaging, with a box that features a special map that allows the wearer to unlock an AR program via Nike‘s WeChat app. The app then offers access to various Shanghai-specific experiences.

The Nike Joyride Run Flyknit “City of Speed” is available now at Nike.com in China. The retail price is set at ¥1399 CNY (approximately $200 USD).

If you’re a proponent of Nike Joyride tech, check out the brand-new Joyride Dual Run as well — a silhouette that blends the benefits of Joyride beads with a traditional running shoe feel.
