We live in a world where annual sneaker traditions are taken for granted. It started as so many important footwear trends have with the Air Jordan Legacy. Air Jordan NBA All-Star colorways, home/away and regular season/playoffs installments foreshadowed product now issued with each year. But it was the Nike Air Force 1s released in tribute to Chinese New Year that opened the doors to annual sneaker releases in conjunction with recurring holidays.


Nike started their YOTx efforts in 2002, and the Air Force 1 family has been synonymous with the Lunar New Year ever since. The Air Force 1 Low in particular has been favored for the Chinese Zodiac colorways, but there has been more variety with each successive animal. Get ready to see some of the best of those released over the past thirteen years as we take a look back at Nike’s best Chinese New Year kicks.
