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.

kd iv dragon package 4 Nike Zoom KD IV Year Of The Dragon Special Packaging

Earlier last week, Sneaker News filled you in on the special packaging expected of the Year Of The Dragon collection, which includes the Air Jordan 2012, Nike Air Force 1, Nike Zoom Kobe VII, and Nike Zoom KD IV. Regarding the last of the bunch, the KD IV, we only got to show you the outer facade of the package, which was ornately decorated in China-specific imagery and a dope ’35′ logo done in traditional type-font – consistent with the design of the shoe. Here we have a look at the inner workings of the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Year Of The Dragon’ packaging; the box features a fold-up lid hinged on one edge, and inside it is a special ‘Year Of The Dragon’ t-shirt sitting above the shoes. No solid release information of this special edition box has been confirmed, but history will suggest that it will be an Asia-exclusive. Check out the extra angles below and let us know what you think! via malambert.

Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Year of the Dragon’ Packaging

Sneaker News just showed you the Nike Kobe VII System’s answer to the Air Jordan 2012 ‘Year of the Dragon’s extravagant special edition housing, and we’ve already seen the Air Force 1 Low YOTD’s ‘AF1-XXX’ box, so that leaves one more from Nike’s ‘Year of the Dragon’ pack and its packaging.  The Nike Zoom KD IV comes through with a box that’s certainly upscale of the typical Kevin Durant signature release, yet not quite as immediately impressive as the AJ2012 and ZK7s.  The construction looks to be something like the YOTD AF1s, but instead of a red-on-white grid, this one’s covered in the dragons colored in the Green Abyss and Current Blue combo that gives this pair its unique look.  Check out more images after the jump and now that we’ve seen all four, let us know which of the Nike Chinese New Year 2012 boxes is best. via fatboykickz.

nike year of the dragon collection 01 Nike Introduces Year of the Dragon Collection

We’re still nearly three weeks away from the official holiday, but Wednesday is as close to Chinese New Year 2012 as we’ve gotten so far.  It started early yesterday when we got our first look at the Nike/Jordan Brand Year of the Dragon collection, which served as a springboard for the official unveiling of both the Nike Kobe VII System Supreme and Air Jordan 2012 YOTD colorways into the evening.  These two couldn’t look more different, and yet they both resonate with the vibe of a Water Dragon in their own way, just as the same is true of their counterparts in the pack, a new Zoom KD IV and Air Force 1 Low.  Each of these is replete with dragon detailing, which starts with the notion that the mythical creature rises from four seas with New Year’s wishes, and you can get the lowdown on the entire set when you click on the jump below.
