Jordan Brand is celebrating the Chinese New Year in style with two upcoming renditions of the Air Jordan 12, each featuring premium Bamboo details, a cross-hatched textured mudguard, and premium 3M reflective details. While international retailers released the Air Jordan 12 Chinese New Year this past weekend, those of you dwelling in the United States will have a chance to grab the men’s and grade school girls’ colorways this Saturday, January 28th for $250 (men’s) and $160 (girl’s).
This detailed look at the Air Jordan 12 “Chinese New Year” comes courtesy of Politics, as we get the best preview yet at the premium details throughout. The Air Jordan 12’s metallic lace eyelets and midsole accents are replaced here with real bamboo to match the Air Jordan 31 that coincides with this retro release. The men’s pair takes on a Taxi-like appearance with a white upper contrasted by a texturized black mudguard, heel, and lining. The carbon fiber remains on the outsole in a Taxi-esque yellow and black while Chinese characters celebrating the Year of the Rooster appear on the tongue. The girl’s pair takes a different approach as an off-white upper features accents of Orewood Brown to make that Varsity Red lining truly pop.
