The Chinese New Year is scheduled to begin on February 5th and Jordan Brand will commemorate the festival with two Air Jordan releases 2019. Nike is actually commemorating the Year of the Pig with an entire collection. The collection includes the Air Max 90, Air Max 98, Air Max 270 and the Kyrie 5. Also included is the Chuck 70. As a part of this collection, Jordan Brand will be dropping special colorways of two different models, namely the Air Jordan 12 and the Air Jordan 33. All of these sneakers will feature Chinese zodiac-inspired detailing and patterns, as well as Bai Jia Yi, which is Chinese patchwork.
As Jordan Brand keeps up with its annual tradition, so one of next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will celebrate the Chinese New Year. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2019 will be the Year of the Pig. The pig also happens to be the last animal in the Chinese 12–year cycle. The Chinese zodiac also claims that people born in the Year of the Pig tend to develop beautiful personalities and are likely to be blessed with good fortune in their lives. Much like last year and the years before it, Jordan Brand will once again be celebrating the Chinese New Year by releasing a new Air Jordan colorway.
