Nike's Chinese New Year-themed sneakers for 2024 are a fusion of cultural heritage and modern design, and the Year of the Dragon is taking center stage. Adding to the lineup is the women's exclusive Nike Air Force 1 Low Year of the Dragon, following closely on the heels of its men's counterpart. This release is part of a broader collection that includes models like the Ja 1, GT Hustle 2, Air Jordan 1 Low OG, AJ 1 Low SE, and the Jordan 38, all adorned with Lunar New Year-inspired aesthetics.
This special Air Force 1 Low edition offers a refreshing twist on the classic silhouette. The design features a crisp white leather upper that serves as a canvas for the more intricate details that pay homage to the Year of the Dragon. One of the standout features is the jewel Swoosh along the midfoot, boasting an eye-catching iridescent finish that captures the mythical essence of the dragon. The heel tab is adorned with a luxurious suede patch that mimics the texture of reptile scales, adding an extra layer of sophistication to the design.
The tongue of the sneaker showcases an iridescent dragon graphic, cleverly incorporating a Nike Swoosh into the mythical creature's design. You will find more Eastern-inspired Nike branding as the theme continues on the insole. Completing the look is a vintage clear rubber midsole paired with a pink rubber outsole.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low Year of the Dragon W will release in Spring 2024, through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. As of now, the retail price has yet to be announced.
