We’re only a few days away from Jan. 1, when folks across the world will celebrate our latest trip around the sun upon the rock we all reside and the latest edition of the Gregorian Calendar will kick off. A little more than a month later will mark the beginning of the Year of the Pig, as the Chinese New Year begins on Feb. 5, 2019.
To celebrate the Chinese New Year, Nike is dropping a special collection of sneakers that will encompass all three of its main footwear lines — Nike, Jordan, and Converse. Per a release, all of the kicks will feature a tradition Chinese patchwork called Bai Jai Yi.
“Two styles of graphics are used to represent this throughout the collection: The first is a traditional geometric quilt pattern that is influenced by all 12 Chinese Zodiac symbols; the second is a mosaic pattern of the 12 symbols,” the release says.
The shoes in this collection will include the Air Force 1, Air Jordan 12, Air Jordan 32, Air Max 1, Air Max 98, Air Vapormax 2019, Blazer Low, Converse Chuck Taylor High, Kyrie 5, and Zoom Pegasus Turbo (thanks to HYPEBEAST for the assist). There’s no word on prices or release dates for specific shoes, but the collection will be available in January.
