Since its inception, Jordan Brand has been known for celebrating global cultures, and its relationship with China has resulted in some remarkable releases. With the Chinese New Year being a central theme for several drops, Jordan Brand has consecutively released shoes themed around the zodiac animals representing each year. As we eagerly await the Year of the Dragon in 2024, the revered Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG takes center stage in the Air Jordan CNY Collection, showcasing intricate design cues and storytelling elements.
A harmonious blend of cultural significance and classic design, the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG in this Chinese New Year colorway crafts a tale through its colors and textures. The shoe’s upper sports textured leather details in an oil green shade, subtly echoing reptile scales to celebrate the Year of the Dragon. A pristine white base graces the toebox, tongue, and midfoot panel, setting the stage for the contrasting elements. Rich golden leather envelops the heel, sharply contrasting with the vibrant red Jordan Wings logo and Swoosh. Paying tribute to the Chinese zodiac sign of 2024, the internal portions of the tongue tag merge the iconic Jumpman logo with a dragon. The design culminates with a crisp white midsole, complementing a muted grey rubber outsole.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG Chinese New Year will release January 24, 2024, through Nike and select Jordan Brand retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $160.
