Every year, Nike outdoes itself with awesome Chinese New Year celebratory releases. And this year is no different with a whole eye-catching lineup. But it seems like they saved the best for last! And by best, we mean the most expensive and coolest Nike AF1. So, we’d like to present to you the upcoming Air Force 1 Year of the Dragon with all of its pizzazz! But before we jump in, another lineup worth checking out is the 2024 All-Star sneakers. Now, without further ado, let’s see what the Year of the Dragon has in store for us.
Air Force 1 Year of the Dragon – As Golden as It Can Get!
Although we already have a full list of CNY releases, Nike sat on this one for quite some time. But now we have pictures and release information about the upcoming Air Force 1 Year of the Dragon! So, these babies took a page out of CLOT’s book with a gold silk upper with a pattern inspired by Chinese culture. However, the highlight of the upper are the dragon and phoenix embroidery on the sides.
But that’s not all, because the silk extends to the midsole, and the the kicks end with a tan outsole. The pair also features the “喜喜” (Xixi) emblem, which means “Double Happiness”. Why you ask? Because the pair’s release coincides with Valentine’s Day and CNY. So, to celebrate the double holidays, we got double the happiness!
The new Air Force 1 Year of the Dragon will drop on February 14, 2024. The kicks will be a women’s and Nike SNKRS China exclusive! According to rumors, these babies will retail for 2599 RMB which is approximately $365. This makes these babies quite expensive, but they’re definitely worth it, especially in resale. You see, the kicks are currently worth $917 on average on the aftermarket! So, how can you score a pair on drop day?
