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.

Nike Zoom Kobe VII Supreme ‘Year of the Dragon’ – Officially Unveiled

kobe vii system year of the dragon 00 Nike Zoom Kobe VII Supreme Year of the Dragon   Officially Unveiled

Earlier tonight, Nike brought us an official introduction to the Chinese Zodiac-inspired ‘Year of the Dragon’ Collection, featuring a number of special edition versions of some of Nike/Jordan Brand’s biggest names in signature kicks. Among the selected few is the Zoom Kobe VII, previewed several times in the past few weeks. Inspired by a combination of Kung-Fu and Kobe’s early childhood days in Italy, the shoe sports an eye catching red/green/yellow color scheme, complete with dragon graphics and the System Supreme insole options. As you can see, the retail version features a yellow dragon on the heel, as opposed to the tonal sample version seen last week, but most other aspects of the look seem to match up. You can check out some detailed shots of the shoe and inserts after the jump, and check back for a release date, as these are expected to be on the way to retail sooner rather than later.

air jordan 2012 year of the dragon 00 Air Jordan 2012 Year of the Dragon   Officially Unveiled

A few weeks back, we brought you a sneak preview of the Year of the Dragon edition of the Air Jordan 2012, and now we get a better look thanks to the official unveiling of the Nike Basketball/Jordan Brand collection. We’ve only seen a few colorways of the Air Jordan 2012 at this point, but it was clear from early photos that the upcoming Jordan signature model would feature interchangeable sockliner/insole options, similar to the Air Jordan 2011, and perhaps even more so to the recently released Zoom Kobe VII System. These new pics show off the super high-cut bootie with matching dragon-decorated ankle strap, clearly a bold new direction for the Air Jordan heritage line. You’ll need to see for yourself, so continue on after the jump for more info and images of the ‘Year of the Dragon’ Air Jordan 2012 and stay tuned for release info coming soon.
