Looking like it’s been crafted from the sneaker Gods themselves, the Swoosh’s ‘Year of the Dragon’ presents the Nike Air Force 1 Low CNY.
Every year, the Oregon-based powerhouse delivers a plethora of ice-cold sneakers to celebrate the Chinese New Year, and 2024 is certainly no exception. Landing amongst other themed kicks like the Air Jordan 1 and Jordan Stadium 90, the AF1 Low at hand takes gold detailing to entirely new heights. We’d even go as far as saying this iteration is an embellished masterpiece, exuding premium intricacy at every corner. Read on for a glimpse into the artistry…
If we were to sum up this silhouette with one word, it would be extravagant. This special edition doesn’t do anything by halves, embracing floral patterning within the upper and midsole via meticulous embroidery. Gold stitching paints the picture of a Dragon and Phoenix, historically symbolising harmony, balance and royalty.
Silky textures emphasise the luxury feel, supported by golden Nike Air logos that adorn the heel. If things still weren’t gilded enough for you, then take a closer look at the details! The tongue tag, lace dubraes, aglets also receive a ‘dipped in gold’ finish, rounding off this lavish offering.
The Nike Air Force Low 1 CNY ‘Year of the Dragon’ (HJ4285-777) is due to land on WEDNESDAY 14TH FEBRUARY 2024 via NIKE SNKRS & SELECTED RETAILERS. While you await the drop, shop the latest from Nike via the banner below…
