Today, January 23, marks the official start of the Chinese New Year in the United States. So, to get you ready for all of the Year of the Dragon inspired drops in 2012, we offer you an in-depth look at the full range of 2012 Chinese Zodiac releases from the likes of Nike, Jordan, New Balance, PUMA and Converse. Make sure you weigh in on which brand you think has the best YOTD releases at the end of the feature.

Nike Air Force 1 “Year of the Dragon”

While we are still in the dark as to when and how most YOTD releases will hit retailers, the YOTD AF1 was happily welcomed amongst the ranks of past Chinese Zodiac releases a little over a week ago. Loaded with subtle nods to the dragon atop a wealth of premium materials, these are a stellar addition to any sneakerhead?s collection.

  • Akacollege

    The KDs are nasty. I heard they released on the 21st from sneakernews. But it wasn’t even at HoH.?

  • Roro976

    The Kobes, J’s, and KDs are already sold out at RMK

  • sneakermonster3

    The kd’s the j’s and the kobe’s r all nasty

  • Memrcs

    Those AJ 2012’s look like some kind of crappy ass shoe kit with all the accessories and packaging, they want you to feel like you’re getting alot whe. U buy some junk for $200+….C’mon man stick with retros!

    • Brandon Lenoir

      AJ 2012, These are strictly for collectors and basketball enthusiast. If they keep releasing retros every month it water downs the product. It takes away from the value. Expand your outlook on shoes. You have to learn to look outside the box.

  • Travis R

    what about the lebron 9s?

  • DeLeon Hughes

    These are nice. The AF1’s are the best though.

  • Thad Matta

    them pumas >>

  • Rdinero22

    Hey the Kevin Durants come out on Nike I’d on the 30th and they’re gonna include the year of the dragon option but it’s only on that day…. So I wouldn’t go for the Durants unless u really like that blue color cuz you’ll be able to make your own color way

  • monz

    The new balance colorways are crazy hot. But the Jordan ’12 just look like a mix between the kobe vii’s with a lebron colorway. I know they’re all Nike, but can’t they try a little harder.

  • Duy Nguyen
