A three-drawered package holding six different cushioning/fit setup combinations for one advanced performance design has given the Air Jordan 2012 an early lead in the ‘Year of the Dragon’ special edition packaging, but that won’t be the only premium treatment given to a YOTD drop coming out of Beaverton. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘Year of the Dragon’ will make its own mark on the occasion, albeit in a totally different form than the AJ2012, despite the fact that the ZK7 also features an interchangeable insert system. But the Kobe VII System YOTD goes for a more conceptually gratifying approach, opting for an angular molded case whose lines and colors were taken straight from the shoe’s rear sole. It can’t double as an armoire, but this box is certainly one of the more unique we’ve seen for any special edition drop; is it the best of the Chinese New Year packages?
