After CLOT rethought the Air Jordan 13 with its Terracotta Army inspirations, the silhouette has only seen releases in seldom, though with Chinese New Year fast approaching, it seems Jordan Brand is borrowing just a touch from Edison Chen’s vision as they celebrate the Year of the Rat with its very own colorway. Despite this, however, the pair — at least from the available angles — is removed of any overt symbolism. Instead, it features a clean palette of white, camel, and hot pink, with the latter taking up the entire tread possibly in nod to our small-footed friend’s very own tail. The base leathers are left smooth where least visible, the toe box and tongue, with its medial and lateral paneling etching with various patterns somewhat reminiscent of the country’s traditional architecture. Mudguards and portions of the heel counter then contrast in their brown suede hits, a luxurious finish to a pair with many details yet to be revealed. Grab a quick look at what’s in store right here and sit tight as these are rumored to be dropping on February 1st, 2020.
