Nike Sportswear introduced the AF1-XXX special edition box with the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year Of The Dragon’ of January, paying tribute to the 2012 zodiac in a black satin-y finish and dragon detailing. Arriving later this year is an Air Force 1 ‘Year Of The Dragon’ Part II in this Red/Retro Blue/Metallic Gold colorway seen here in a recent images published by none other than NSW-head Gentry Humphrey. These are certainly a far cry from the luxurious package of the first version that was accompanied with slick NSW gear, as this Dragon Part II opts for a more festive approach like the Air Force 1 ‘Year of the Dog’ of 2006. We’ll keep you updated with this newest Air Force 1 release, so let us know what you think in the comments area below!

the black one's are way better hope i'll get those from ebay for a good price! and what's up with those 16's?
Those forces are pretty hot. Colorful, yet simple. It would also be cool if they would bring back those 16 lows. Maybe, this is a harbinger for things to come? Who knows?
Looks clean...i wonder what materials they are using on that...in the photo the red reminds me of the Nesquik AF1's Mayor did!
To be honest the first Year of the Dragon are probably the worst AF1 lows I have ever seen in person. They are still sitting on shelves after dropping in Jan, sadly these dont raise the bar that much. But hey the 30 anniversary has been fire for the most part and the Camos are the hardest AF1 lows to drop in years.
I doubt these will be hard to get they look like general releases to me prob footlocker/footaction. These are an easy pass for me nothing pops about them, and I am an AF1 lifer.
