The Year of the Zodiac releases for the Air Force 1 Low is typically a one-time affair, but with 2012 being the 30th Anniversary, why the heck not? Sneaker News broke the news of the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year Of The Dragon’ II a few weeks back, but tonight we’ll take a look at the extra angles of this Turquoise/Red/Gold colorway brought to us by AF1 aficionado DJ Clark Kent. This Supreme offering lives up to the billing by utilizing leather-wrapped midsoles and a red material with a Dragon-like texture. The tongue also features the Dragon label and a multi-colored stripe that travels down the middle of the length of the tongue. Look for yourself below and stick with Sneaker News for more updates and release information, and let us know if you like this second Dragon offering better than the satin-y black colorway of January.
Are you new to AF1 releases? Supremes generally retail at $175-$225. They either have a leather wrapped midsole or a visible Max Air unit sole. The interior is usually lined with leather. What's the issue? You stay copping them general release $90 joints with the crap leather, and leave the hot joints for me. Deal?
Nice by way that they are more colorful than the blacks ones, but not at $200 just because they wanna mark the AF1 30 years of service. Man they are crazy pricing their Pearl Collection. Last year's "Denim" release sold for $130.
fingers crossed that people be sleeping on these :) but then again, everybody be sleeping on forces nowadays...
