The Nike Air Force 1 ‘Year of the Dragon’ began with a traditional approach with the satin-y black release in January, then arrived to a more festive appeal with the Blue/Red/Gold composition in late June. Nike Sportswear is taking the term ‘Year’ to a literal level as we get yet another installment of the Nike Air Force 1 ‘Year of the Dragon’ release of 2013; it features a tonal light beige upper built with a embossed large-scale croc-print material with a shimmering heel-tab and swoosh border for a regal detail. The ‘Year of the Dragon’ tongue label and insoles from the previous two installments make their return, anchoring the Year of the Dragon saga of the Air Force 1. Additional details are just ahead, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year of the Dragon’ III.

Nike Air Force 1 Low “Year of the Dragon” II – Available

air force 1 yotd2 west 1 Nike Air Force 1 Low Year of the Dragon II   Available

The first ‘Year of the Dragon’ Nike Air Force 1 Low was a fairly understated affair in black silk. This new design? Couldn’t be more different while utilizing the same silo and theme.  The AF1 Low ‘Year of the Dragon’ II offers a twist on the primary pigment colors with a red, teal and gold pairing that’s given a nice boost from the white leather-wrapped midsole. These are covered in detail, from the embossed suede dragon scale sections to the multicolor woven tongue and insanely patterned insoles, and come in the same dragon-covered AF1-XXX packaging we saw from the first drop. Might there also be a deluxe edition on tap with a wooden box to rival the first YOTD’s ornate golden applique? These have just become available today at retailers like WESTNYC, but other spots may have them available tomorrow as well, so don’t miss out!

Next Saturday, June 23rd marks the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, and since Nike Sportswear has another fire-breathing lizard-inspired sneaker on tap, what better day to release it?  The Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year of the Dragon II’ will arrive next weekend in a decidedly more expressive form than the black pair that preceded it closer to Chinese New Year, a red, blue, white and gold mix that has vague Olympic undertones as we approach the London Opening Ceremonies next month.  And with just a week to go until these arrive at retail, we’ve got a new set of images to share after the jump; let us know how these compare to the first YOTD Air Force 1 Low and stick with Sneaker News for updates.  via atmos

Nike Air Force 1 Low “Year of the Dragon II” – Release Date

June 11th, 2012 by | 13 comments

air force 1 year of the dragon summer 2012 Nike Air Force 1 Low Year of the Dragon II   Release Date

The initial Nike Air Force 1 Low carrying the Year of the Dragon moniker that dropped in 2012 was by all means a premium release, but for all its Zodiac goodness it skimped out on one of the most recognizable dragon-style design elements: the scales. The second go-round picks up the slack, lining the side panels with the reptilian clad look via a geometric design and laying a flashy colorway over the top as opposed to January’s mostly blacked out affair. Stay with us after the jump to see the official images of this Air Force 1 banger in all its glory. Also, be sure to circle your calender for the June 23rd release date (the same day as the Chinese holiday of the Dragon Boat Festival) for the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Year of the Dragon” part two.

Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘YOTD II’ – Available on eBay

This Year of the Dragon also happens to be the Air Force 1′s 30th, so unlike previous years when a deluxe-packaged January release marked each passing of the Chinese Zodiac, 2012 brings us two Nike Air Force 1 Low YOTD drops.  This ‘Year of the Dragon’ II Air Force 1 Low joins the AF1-XXX collection as easily its most colorful design to date, and they’re also likely the most intricate thanks to details like red snake scales, multicolor woven tongues and footbeds.  These come in a similar dragon-covered red grid package as the black YOTD, and though their official release date is TBD, they’re available early from sellers like roguelephant on eBay.

Sneaker News first broke the news of the second installment of 2012′s Year of the Dragon tribute by the Air Force 1, which features quite the opposite effect as January’s tonal-black release. Part 2 hits us with Retro Blue, Red, and Metallic Gold in a complete package that would please Air Force 1 fans worldwide, but it’s the little details that push these over the top; the weaved tongue, the unique dragon-like texture on the red sectionals on the upper, and the Supreme-staple leather-wrapped midsole make these one of the best Forces of AF1-XXX Collection, which is only looking to get stronger and stronger as the months go by. These will in fact release in the coming months, so check out these new angles below and now that we’re getting a slightly clearer POV, let us know if you like these better than the January release.

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.
