With the New Year directly around the corner, Jordan Brand has a slate of seasonally appropriate selections ready to go, ensuring that sneakerheads the world over will be able to start 2019 in style. The Jumpman generally pays homage to the Chinese New Year with their drops as well, and after releasing a special “Year Of The Dog” Air Jordan 12 to celebrate the change of calendar last year they’re calling upon the beloved model once again — this time to celebrate the “Year Of The Pig.” Featuring a black satin upper with a textured white leather overlay and metallic gold midfoot/eyelet detailing, they present a look that’s similar to the “Wings” Air Jordan 12 at first glance. However, this CNY pair differentiates itself with a eye-catching sockliner that features a multitude of colors and patterns, plus a special embellishment on the left shoe’s tongue that replaces the standard Jumpman logo. You can expect these new 12s to release soon — likely in January — so enjoy a detailed set of images below while you wait, and stay tuned to our Jordan Release Dates page for further updates as they’re available.
