Notice anything familiar about this Air Jordan 12 “Chinese New Year” edition? Well, you should. It’s a modernized “Taxi” rendering, updated to celebrate the Chinese zodiac next year.
The Year of the Rooster plays host to this 20th anniversary Air Jordan 12 which denotes Chinese script at the tongue alongside a textile mudguard and the appearance of bamboo at the eyelets. Additionally, the white upper takes on a reflective coating to add even greater distinction to the shoe.
**UPDATE** Nike has confirmed to Sneaker News that the Jordan “Chinese New Year” Collection will begin its release scheduled on December 25 online at Jordan.com followed by region specific retailers (Hong Kong Kicks Lounge, Beijing Yaxin, Shanghai WZK, Guangzhou XH55 and Taipei PHANTACi) on January 7, 2017.
