Of the three forthcoming animal style Nike Zoom Hyperflights this tiger-striped edition is the most ostentatious. Whereas the ‘Shark’ edition goes for a subtle ocean blue gradient and the ‘Lion’ utilizes a tasteful golden weave, the ‘Tiger’ Zoom Hyperflight goes over the top with its high contrast striping reminiscent of the Cincinnati Bengals’ shoulders. These are coming up for a Friday, August 2nd release, and you can see a fresh set of images below to tide you over until the drop date.

Tiger pattern is to pay homage to the "Ten Tigers of Guangdong." The character in the sole is "yue" which represent Southern China region. The gold Hyperflight, on the other hand, is modeled after the Forbidden City. The character in the sole is "jing" which represent Beijing.
Haha this isn't even call the "tiger" edition. Google translate tiger and see if that's the same character that shows up on the insole. Just cause one of the three hyperflight have tiger stripes doesn't mean it has anything to do with the king of the jungle... Sneakernews really have to work to get their facts straight. smh
