In an interview with foreign media Inverse, Park explained that Marvel wanted to show their new martial artist “Shang-Chi” a closer look.

“It (shoes) is something that both you and I can wear”, but it also reflects the national identity of this character.

Park believes that “Shang-Chi” clothing should reflect his identity, not only his Asian descent, but also his experience as an American immigrant.

“Whenever we design a costume, we will try our best to tell the story behind this character. The dragon (armor) symbolizes Shang-Chi’s mother, and the ten rings are given by his father. He is the product of his mother and father. It was also a product of his time in the United States.”

This is why there are Jordan shoes, because they symbolize the American identity of “Shang-Chi”.

Actor Simu Liu revealed that he didn’t want to wear these shoes at first.

“At first I was very opposed. I remember when I was trying on, I was wondering if Shang-Chi was the first superhero to wear sneakers? He should wear things like boots. I didn’t understand their thoughts at the time. .”

But in the end Simu Liu changed his mind and fell in love with his Jordan shoes.

“As we started shooting, I felt that this shoe is still pretty cool, making me more affinity.”
