As January came to an end, photos of a crimson Air Jordan 1 sneaker, which Jordanheads have never been seen before, surfaced on the Internet. Many 23 is Back readers had probably been wondering if this new jordans would be accompanying the Air Jordan 29 “Year of the Goat.” Even though this sneaker has not been officially created by Jordan Brand, it has certainly been designed to commemorate the Chinese New Year. Apparently, this Year of the Sheep-themed Air Jordan 1 sneaker will be making its retail debut in limited numbers on one of the upcoming Jordan release dates 2015.
This premium Air Jordan 1 pair is actually a custom rendition that was whipped up as a result of the joint efforts of both The Remade and 400ml Clothing to be a part of their Chinese New Year Pack. The sneaker’s fiery crimson upper consists of a combination of premium leather and suede. The choice of the hue for the sneaker’s upper is quite meaningful since the color red is regarded as a symbol of good luck and joy in China. Instead of the Jordan Wings logo and a Jordan Jumpman or 23, both the ankle collar and heel feature white Chinese characters. Finally, this premium iteration of the Air Jordan 1 has been finished off with a white midsole and a gum outsole.
Despite the fact that Jordan Brand is officially celebrating the Chinese New Year with a special Air Jordan 29 colorway, 23 is Back readers would not mind copping a premium Air Jordan 1 sneaker. The only catch is that they will have to spend $888 to be able to preorder it on February 7th, 2015. February 19th, 2015 is one of the Jordan release dates 2015 selected for this pair’s retail debut, and only 4 pairs will be hitting the shelves in the U.S. and another four in China, so they will have to act fast.
