Chinese New Year (CNY) is just over a month away (16/2/18) which means the New Year themed shoes are starting to surface in order to cause a buzz. Nike is set to release a couple of models which they have unveiled in the build up to the festivities, having shown us 4 sneakers already we thought we’d give you a look at them all in one place.
First up is the Air Jordan 6 which images of have been floating around for a while. The floral themed Jordan has black as the shoes base coat, but is almost completely covered in a floral/firework design. These are expected to drop on the 18th of January.
The other Jordan set to release the CNY treatment is the Air Jordan 32 Jordan brands latest performance model. The 32 has the same floral/firework detailing that is seen on the 6s but is exclusively seen on the trainers wings.
The non Jordan brand offerings take a lower-key approach with simple hits of colour hinting to the trainers theme. The Vapormax has a heather grey upper which has a multicolour knit pattern around the bottom portion of the upper. The Vapormaxs sole unit appears to be blacked out.
The Air Max 90 rounds out the Air max portion of the Chinese New Year pack with the model taking a very low-key approach to the new years celebrations. The shoe is almost completely black, bar a red swoosh and Nike Air on the heel which pops. The best feature of the 90 is actually the hardest to see; the shoe has a paisley print on the mudguard.
Finally we have the Air Force 1, shocking no one the swoosh decided to add the Chinese New Year flare to the legendary model. Taking the shoes iconic white colourway and adds some detail to the swoosh. Nike have decided to but the same firework theme seen throughout the collection simply on to the tick.
