Nike, the global leader in footwear, has announced the launch of two new athletic footwear lines in Japan.
The company has a strong track record in introducing new athletic products to Japan, and the new shoes in question are designed for the Japanese market.
The Nike Xtreme 3 and Nike XTreme 4 are the newest products from Nike’s Tokyo headquarters.
These two shoes feature an ultra-narrow midsole for a more supportive feel, while also allowing for flexibility in the heel and toe.
The new Nike XTR series has an extra-long sole that provides added flexibility.
The Nike XLT and XLT 2 shoes are designed specifically for the Japan market.
The XLT 3 is also the first shoe in Nike’s portfolio to feature a heel counter to help balance out the shoe’s weight distribution.
The heel counter is one of the key features that makes the Nike Xtrad 2 and Xtrads such unique footwear in Japan, where it’s often hard to find good-quality shoes in the market.
Nike is also launching the new Nike M3 and Nike M5 in Japan this week, which will be available for sale in the Japanese fashion and luxury market.
Both the Nike M series will feature a more traditional Japanese design.
The new shoes will be priced at ¥2,500 ($400), and the Nike Y3 and Y5 will be $700 ($350), the company said in a statement.
Nikes shoes have become a staple for Japanese men and women over the past several years, thanks in part to the rise of the high-end sports shoe market in the country.
Nike is currently one of Japan’s top-earning brands, with sales totaling $4.5 billion in 2014, according to research firm NPD Group.
The shoes are widely used in Japanese and overseas communities for sports, fitness, and everyday activities.
