Nike is set to enchant sneaker enthusiasts with the release of the Nike Air Force 1 Low Year of the Dragon. Beginning with a timeless all-white base, this edition transforms into a spectacle of colors and intricate details inspired by the Chinese New Year.
New Nike Air Force 1 Low Year of the Dragon:
The shoe’s standout feature is the two-tone translucent sole unit, with a peach midsole and a pink outsole, adding a vibrant touch. The Swoosh undergoes a remarkable transformation, now presented as a smoky grey bubble with a visible grid underneath. The suede mustache takes on a scale texture, adorned with a gradient trim in yellow and green.
A silver, holographic tongue badge steals the spotlight, featuring a dragon gracefully wrapped around the Swoosh. Adding an extra layer of flair, a detachable iridescent carabiner takes the shape of a curled dragon. Chinese characters grace the white insole, contributing to the cultural narrative embedded in the design.
As part of Nike‘s broader Chinese New Year collection, the Air Force 1 Low is not the sole attraction. Ja Morant’s love for themed sneakers is celebrated in a Ja 1 iteration, boasting white, blue, and gold hues. Dragon motifs, including an intricately twisted dragon for the lace dubraes and printed gold scale graphics for the midfoot panel, make this release a true collector’s gem.
Although specific launch details are yet to be confirmed, there’s speculation that the Air Force 1 Low might debut as a China- or Asia-exclusive. Stay tuned for updates on this captivating release that promises to usher in the Lunar New Year with style and cultural resonance.
