For Nike, Chinese New Year is always the flashy event and 2020 is poised to be no different. However, with a vibrant assortment of toolings in store for the rest of the month, it seems their standouts are some of the most limited we’ve seen from the cultural holiday in a long time. UNDEFEATED helped open the Air Max 1’s Asia-exclusive run — pairing with it a vast assortment of traditional cutlery and plating — while the Air Jordan 1 Low is set to follow in both exclusivity as well as color. Patterns are undoubtedly at the helm here with the only unmarked panels preferring a mix of black and grey-affixed suedes; the heel, which dresses in either two shades, then cuts with a texture that mimics papercraft quite subtly. Elsewhere, floral motifs seem to outfit where need be as rose appliques apply atop the lateral swoosh of one foot as well as the toe box of the other with their respective bases laying the foundation of traditional-themed graphics and a colorful mosaic of a firework-ridden sky. Moreover, the Wings shaped insignia reveals a limited numbering of only 5,000 pairs with distribution still a mystery though it’s possible they’ll be only setting foot overseas. Grab a detailed look here and sit tight for word on who’s getting these and when.
