Nike Sportswear head Gentry Humphrey recently showed us that there’s another ‘Year of the Dragon’ Nike Air Force 1 Low on the way with a more vibrant colorway than January’s release, which means that earlier black silken drop ends up closer to the elegant if simple 30th anniversary pairs we’ve seen from the XXX ‘Pearl’ collection.  Sneaker customizer Zhijun Wang (author of the spectacular laser-etched edition) has also offered his own take on how to blend the YOTD and 30th anny themes, his new appropriately nicknamed AF1 Lows adding a bunch of golden detailing that represent the five elements and their place in Chinese lore.  Have another look at these after the jump and let us know how they compare to both this year’s Chinese Zodiac kicks and the other 30th anniversary Air Force 1s we’ve seen in 2012.

More than any other single pack in the early goings of 2012, the Nike ‘Year of the Dragon’ collection has taken top billing as the most impressive.  Not only are we getting the customary Nike Air Force 1 Low for the Chinese New Year celebration, but Jordan Brand will also capitalize on the strength of last year’s YOTR releases to bring the Air Jordan 2012 to market with a Water Dragon theme.  Zoom Kobe VII Supremes and Zoom KD IVs round out the group for the strongest and most cohesive Lunar New Year set ever concieved, and with the AF1s dropping this past weekend, it’s only a matter of time before the other three make it to retail.  Click through to see a video detailing each shoe’s dragon-inspired details and stick with Sneaker News for the rest of the ‘Year of the Dragon’ release dates.

That whole thing about the Nike Air Force 1 Low being perhaps the least imrpessive of the Nike ‘Year of the Dragon’ collection in terms of packaging — you can throw that right out the window.  And taking nowthing away from the ‘AF1-XXX’ box and the dragon-emblazoned version we’ve seen, but the Air Jordan 2012 and the Zoom Kobe VII YOTD editions each come in some of the best boxes we’ve seen, maybe ever.  But this special edition wooden box for the AF1 might turn out to be the nicest of them all, a dark stained beauty with intricate carved brass symbols on the lid, and not only does it come with the shoes, but also a matching Destroyer Varsity Jacket to create the kind of package that’s going to see some otherworldly resale prices.  Click through to see this regal set in all its glory and stick with Sneaker News for word on when they will arrive at select Chinese Nike Sportswear retailers.  via FRESHNESS

Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Year of the Dragon’ – Release Info

After absolutely zero buildup in 2011, the Nike ‘Year of the Dragon’ collection made some big waves early this year with designs spread from the Sportswear division all the way to Jordan Brand. And while it’s great to see some new designs get the Water Dragon theme, there’s one NSW silhouette that’s been there for the cycle of the Chinese Zodiac year in and year out, and that’s the Nike Air Force 1 Low. The ‘Year of the Dragon’ Air Force 1 Low offers a subtle take on the theme with tonal black embroidery all over the silken uppers, a look so clean (especially from a distance) that the new ‘AF1-XXX’ gridded box might get even more attention than the shoe itself. This package has been seen in earlier images, but these latest shots depict a dragon graphic overlay not totally unlike the YOTD AF1s, but the effect is quite different thanks to the details in black atop the aforementioned red-on-white grid. It’s a great way to kick off the Air Force 1′s 30th anniversary year, and while some Tier Zero retailers expect to have theirs in stock on Sunday, San Antonio’s Sole Boutique and some other shops will be selling their pairs a day earlier, on January 14th, so make sure to check with your local spot.
