With all the hype surrounding Michael Phelps’ ascension into the Olympic pantheon, some have questioned whether reigning World’s Fastest Man Usain Bolt could rack up a similar medals tally if he ran more different kinds of races.  Bolt is untouchable on flat ground over relatively short distances, but similar praise could have been offered for triple crown-winning Chinese hurdler Liu ‘Fly Man’ Xiang at a point earlier this decade.  Xiang was unable to defend his 110m gold in Beijing four years ago because of injury, but Nike hasn’t forgotten that about one of China’s greatest athletes is on the hunt to reclaim his crown.  The Liu Xiang x Nike LunarGlide+ 4 suggests LX might have something extra left as he approaches another Olympic competition endangered by injury, the familiar China-red hits drawing your eye toward gold just like Liu.  Click through to see more of this Liu Xiang LunarGlide 4 and find them now along with the ‘Dream Pack’ Cortez at select Nike Running retailers across China.  via FRESHNESS

Liu Xiang x Nike Running Collection

Penn & Teller’s B.S. did a show ‘debunking’ obesity a few years back by showing that a heavier guy could out-hurdle someone who looked to be in better shape.  But short, tall, fat, or skinny, there are few who can top Chinese Olympic gold medalist Liu Xiang when it comes to sprinting and jumping.  Xiang held the 110m world record for nearly four years, but it’s a mystery why it took nearly that long again after his reign ended for the man to earn a sneaker collaboration.  But the time is finally here and the Liu Xiang x Nike LunarGlide+ 3 and Free Run+ 2 collection appears to have been worth the wait.  Mens and ladies runners will be joined by a run of apparel featuring Xiang’s ‘flying man’ logo, all packaged in a dope wooden chest.  A mere 86 sets will be issued in honor of the now-fallen 12.86s WR and released with a 15-set preview run this Monday, August 29th.  The lucky first 15 buyers will join Liu himself at a special event on September 1st, so click through to see more and let us know if you’re readying your passport to get these in Beijing.  via FRESHNESS
