Nike's Chinese New Year collection is a yearly event, and this year's "Year of the Dragon" lineup is set to be particularly impressive. With over a dozen styles already available, the collection includes not only lifestyle footwear but also performance options like the Nike Pegasus 40.
Introducing the second performance-oriented sneaker from the upcoming collection, alongside the teal-toned Nike Ja 1, the "workhorse with wings" presents a more understated design compared to its casual counterparts. The mesh upper is coated in a single "Sail" shade, creating a clean and neutral foundation, with the TPU quarter, tongue, and laces providing subtle pops of color.
Sitting atop a pristine white React cushioned midsole, vibrant accents in "University Red" bring life to the Swooshes, tongue tabs, and insoles, resembling flickering flames. The inner checks add a touch of salmon pink, coordinating with the topmost eye stays.
Although an official launch date has not been disclosed, we can now catch a glimpse of the Nike Pegasus 40 "Year of the Dragon" in this article.
By the way, Air Jordan 1 Low will also release a new version for women to celebrate Chinese New Year. To complement the design, the shoes are elegantly packaged with a red envelope.
