Reminiscent of the AJ 12 Taxi, this new Air Jordan 12 CNY essentially celebrates Chinese New Year, which is set to occur on January 28th.
Sporting a premium build, white leather covers the majority of its upper that also bears a 3M reflective overlay which is activated when exposed to flash, while textured black leather is utilized for the mudguard and heel tab. Additionally, woodgrain detailing is prominent on the miniature branded side panels and its top two upper eyelets to further define its distinct aesthetic.
Furthermore, a distinguishable element is focalized at the tongue, bearing Chinese text of ‘貳拾’, which translates to “20” — in reference to the years that Jordan Brand has been in the Chinese market.
Retailing for $250, you can buy this pair at select JB and Nike stockists on January 28th, while select retailers overseas have it releasing earlier on January 21st.
