As NIKE, Inc. prepares to debut its full collection for the Lunar New Year, the North American conglomerate has unofficially shared looks at parts of the “Year of the Rabbit” capsule. The latest?: An Air Jordan 1 Low commemorating the Chinese zodiacal figure.
Leaked images of the pair reveal a brown, grey, and off-white color combination across the low-top trim of Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker. Most of the forefoot overlays indulge in a semi-faded, brown suede material, while toe boxes opt for a classic white smooth leather. Profile swooshes and panels at the heel also opt for a hairy construction, playing into the Lunar New Year theme. The most obvious nod to the zodiacal figure, however, arrives in the form of the furry laces. Furthermore, the tongues’ underside features an image of a rabbit with the sneaker’s edition out of 5,000.
No firm release date has been disclosed by the brand, but that’s likely to change in the first month of 2023. In the meantime, enjoy an early look at the pair ahead, courtesy of Instagram user @die_sel666.
