Jordan Brand is no stranger to celebrating the Chinese New Year with signature kicks. Over the years we’ve seen JB give us some dope sneakers that honor the zodiac animal sign for that year. Zodiac themed Jordan’s are nothing new, we’ve seen Retros; team Jordan’s, and even special packs that honored the Chinese New Year. Some of the most notoriously known colorways are the Year of the Rabbit, Year of the Dragon, Year of the Snake and this year, we get the Year Of the Pig.
This celebrated sneaker features a Black satin upper with White textured overlays to compliment the matching White sole. Metallic Gold details and the multicolored pattern that are found on the inner lining completes the design. One of the key features on this year’s Air Jordan 12 ‘Chinese New Year’ design is its Black, fabric upper that can either fade away over time or be removed on purpose to reveal the hidden layer of Chinese Bai Jia Yi patterns.
