The Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year Of The Rabbit’ was one of the best releases of 2011 and certainly one of the more memorable AF1 outputs in a long while. But 2011? That’s old news! Here’s a peek at 2012’s Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year Of The Dragon'; it features a tonal black upper constructed in a luxurious satin-like material with dragon detailing stealthily surrounding the upper. The midsole is also a solid white, and appears to be wrapped with leather for that ‘Supreme’ effect. Another interesting note is the new box, labeled AF1-XXX, signifying the 30th Anniversary of the Nike Air Force 1, the historic basketball shoe that laid the groundwork for the most successful line of basketball performance footwear. Thanks to Jack Edwards, we’ve got a nice look at these, so let us know what you think and get a pair in advance from playaplaya8219 on eBay.
Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year Of The Dragon’
More basic than what you would expect, but I like the subtle details though. You know, sometimes less is more when it comes to special edition shoes. Very clean colorway, and the materials are very nice.
These look nice, but we need more pics. Like the back, insole and outsole for any more YOTD details.
Nice shoes! The material definitely reminds me of the CLOT x AF1. I'm sure Nike can do much better with the box design though...
Wow, its velvet material. It has an unseen design that these pics dont show! How are these.not creative? ? Stupid ppl...
This year is the black water dragon. So that's why it's all black. It still is kinda boring. Need some good or red to make it really pop
Called Nike and these are for sure releasing at 21 Mercer sometime in January, and they will be a tier zero release.
wow, i need to see more pics before i say for sure that these are boring, that detail i cant see might do it for me
