A simple thought experiment to gauge either your longterm memory, sneakerhead experience, changes in Lunar New Year sneaker output or some of each: how would you compare the Year of the Dragon to the Year of the Ox? Only three years separate them on the Chinese zodiac, but Nike’s gradual expansion has followed by other brands and now in 2012 with snake such a natural footwear expression, we’re reaching a new peak. A classic silhouette we’d seen in Tiger and Ox form but was conspicuously silent during the Rabbit and Dragon years, the Nike Blazer High has another scaled edition on the way for 2013. Adding to the snake Swooshed VNTG 77s on the way, this YOTS Blazer High has a Toronto Raptors lean, but makes its intentions clear with a distinctive heel badge in place of the traditional un-italicized OG logo. Let us know where these rank amongst the still growing catalog of serpentine ’13s and stick with Sneaker News for US release info.
