One of the few yearly sneaker releases I look forward to is the "Year of the..." series. What started out as a special Air Force 1 release in 2002 (Year of the Horse) has become a platform for Nike to welcome the Chinese New Year with the launch of limited edition sneakers inspired by the coming year's zodiac animal. For 2012, Nike drops 4 different styles as part of the "Year of The Dragon" collection - AIR FORCE 1 LOW SUPREME, AIR JORDAN 2012, NIKE KOBE VII SYSTEM SUPREME and NIKE ZOOM KD IV. As always, I'll limit myself to the classics and stick with these beauties. Hopefully the sticker price won't be that much.


Subtle, yet dope, nonetheless.

The iconic Air Force 1 turns 30 this year!

I wonder how close the final version would be to this sample pair.

Anyone who can translate this for me?

Worldwide release date is January 15, 2012. (no word yet if we're getting the entire collection locally)
