Jordan Brand Already Has Two Sneakers Ready For The Chinese New Year 2018

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster and 2018 will be the Year of the Dog. Jordan Brand has had an annual tradition of dropping a bunch of Chinese New Year-themed sneakers each year. Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan releases 2017 for the Chinese New Year included an Air Jordan 12 and an Air Jordan 31, both of which made their retail debut on January 28th, 2017. While this year is not over yet, it seems that Jordan Brand has already whipped up two brand new Chinese New Year-themed Air Jordan releases 2018 for the Year of the Dog.

The first of Jordan Brand’s Chinese New Year releases for 2018 is the Air Jordan 6 “CNY.” Photos of the actual sneaker first surfaced online by the end of October 2017. Nonetheless, the initial reports were quite correct about what this sneaker looks like. Judging from the photos, it is a nearly all-Black sneaker with uppers predominantly made up of leather, with suede overlays on top. Its uppers also feature fireworks graphics in multiple hues, while floral motifs and patterns have also been embroidered all over. Additionally, Metallic Gold can also be spotted throughout, such as over the heels, lace locks, midsoles and some of the floral graphics.

Jordan Brand’s second Chinese New Year release for next year is the Air Jordan 32 “CNY.” This Air Jordan 32 colorway looks similar to the Air Jordan 6 one. Like the Air Jordan 6 “CNY,” the uppers of this sneaker are also nearly all-Black. However, the rear half of the sneaker is almost entirely covered in Gold- and Red-colored fireworks graphics. A rose motif, in Green, Red and White, also appears to be embroidered on its sides. A large, Red-colored “Jumpman” can also be spotted over its all-White midsoles, while it is equipped with icy, translucent outsoles as well.

The Chinese New Year 2018 will be celebrated on February 16th, 2018, but reports and rumors suggest that these two sneakers will end up being among January’s Jordan releases 2018. Reports also suggest that the Air Jordan 6 “CNY” will retail at a price of $250 and the Air Jordan 32 “CNY” will retail for $185.
