Sneaker News just showed you the Nike Kobe VII System’s answer to the Air Jordan 2012 ‘Year of the Dragon’s extravagant special edition housing, and we’ve already seen the Air Force 1 Low YOTD’s ‘AF1-XXX’ box, so that leaves one more from Nike’s ‘Year of the Dragon’ pack and its packaging. The Nike Zoom KD IV comes through with a box that’s certainly upscale of the typical Kevin Durant signature release, yet not quite as immediately impressive as the AJ2012 and ZK7s. The construction looks to be something like the YOTD AF1s, but instead of a red-on-white grid, this one’s covered in the dragons colored in the Green Abyss and Current Blue combo that gives this pair its unique look. Check out more images after the jump and now that we’ve seen all four, let us know which of the Nike Chinese New Year 2012 boxes is best. via fatboykickz.
Instant cop! Coolest pkg. A breath of fresh air on KD IVs I'm telling' y'all!!! 2012 is the year of the KDs and LBJs. Screw Kobe 7s. Nobody is in the right state of mind to spend $180 for a piece of trash. LBJ 9s are still justified albeit in $170s because the design is far superior than Kobe 7s. However, KD's are the best-designed and the most affordable amongst the 2012 releases. Whoop it up for the KD IVs!!!!
Best of the YOTD pack and top 3 KD IV. The blue is nothing like the LBIX Chinas, the KD IV is darker but the blue is crazy reflective/iridescent glow. Does anyone know what stores exactly will have these in the US?
I do collect sneakers especially the boxes for my black dildos safekeeping and stay-fresh chlorox smell. mmmmmm...yumm-mmeee!!!!
