Another year is going by and another Chinese New Year is coming. And to celebrate this event, Jordan Brand creates special edition, to be more specific, it is “The Chinese New Year” Air Jordan 1 Low.
This year version is decorated with graphics of an ox throughout the “Bred”-like color blocking on the upper, while a red tassel is attached above the shoelaces. What makes the highlight of the edition is the delicate embroidery on the canvas making the upper look as made from brocade. Looking closely at the embroidery, you can see branches of flowers, specially, one of the twelve zodiac animals – the Ox – the mascot of the next lunar year.
On the heel, the Jordan Wings logo has been upgraded to a golden embroidered version instead of the thin lines in other Jordan 1 Low. Another point that sets this release apart is a red woven cord running around the heel loops out of the heel, adding a nice golden tassel beam.
The shoe also comes packaged in a decorative box with the aforementioned graphics covering the Nike branding throughout. Grab a detailed look below.
