Nike, Inc. is gearing up for an epic Year of the Dragon celebration in February 2024. This highly anticipated event is set to be one of their largest yet, with an increasing number of shoe releases inspired by the occasion making waves.
As we approach the arrival of the upcoming year, the Oregon-based establishment continues to offer glimpses of styles suitable for the transition to the Zodiacal calendar. Adding to their extensive plans for the "Year of the Dragon", the Air Jordan 2 Low is the latest sneaker to join their collection.
This silhouette, which has been released in various styles over the past fourteen months, follows the same pattern as previous Nike Sportswear options. It features a sleek color scheme and pays homage to the central figure of the event. The upper is predominantly white, but its design differs from the original 1980s blueprint created by Bruce Kilgore. Instead, the panel that wraps around the mid-foot to the spine is adorned with dragon-inspired scales. A touch of shimmering gold can be seen on the piping near the mid-foot, as well as on the "Wings" emblem found on the tongue.
In other places, the Air Jordan model maintains its regal presence, serving as a suitable upgrade for the festive occasion. The inner lining, now in a rich burgundy hue, boasts a finish reminiscent of satin. The top eyelets, too, embrace a metallic gold shade, perfectly complementing the nearby "Wings" logo. As for the midsoles, they return to a pristine and colorless arrangement, while the traction from mid-foot to forefoot receives a semi-translucent "jade" transformation. Adding to the allure, a red envelope and an ornate Jumpman charm make their appearance. These special additions pay homage to traditional Chinese symbols, bringing good luck and protecting against malevolent spirits for those fortunate enough to acquire this limited edition retro.
As of now, specific information regarding the release of the Jordan 2 "Year of the Dragon" on Nike SNKRS remains undisclosed. However, it is anticipated that this highly anticipated sneaker will become available to the public before March 2024. In the meantime, take pleasure in viewing meticulously captured photographs of this remarkable pair.
By the way, Air Jordan 1 Low OG for Chinese New Year will be released on January 24, 2024 with $140.
