Come January 2017, the Jordan brand will be celebrating the upcoming Chinese New Year month with a revamped Air Jordan 12.
The exclusive Chinese New Year 2017 collection will retain the iconic model’s “Taxi” colourway while adding a special Chinese wording on the tongue that reads “貳拾”, which literally translated as “20”. In case you are wondering the meaning behind the word “20” on the tongue, it actually refers to the brand’s 20th-anniversary celebration of the Air Jordan 12. Other new features including special detailings on the insoles and mudguard. Rounding up the shoe is the upper made from a reflective 3M material.
Available in limited quantities, the Air Jordan 12 Chinese New Year 2017 edition is expected to release on January 28 for a retail price of US$250 (RM1,119). Each pair will be packaged in a special box that comes with a gold-detailing dust bag.
