This year’s annual Chinese zodiac release from Nike was revealed to be an Air Force 1 recently, reigniting many readers’ love affair with the classic silhouette. Extremely limited and set to release only in China, the “Year of the Rabbit” shoe features a white upper of suede and buttery leather. Blue and red chenille Swooshes accentuate the lateral and medial sides, respectively, and custom heel and tongue tabs denote its special nature. The custom packaging, which bumps the price of these kicks to almost 400 USD, includes special wrapping paper, graphics and candy wrapper shape. Get your Chinese connections on the phone and tell them to mark their calendar for the 23rd of this month.
