Known for its celebratory Chinese New Year colorways, Nike is set to release an Air Max 98 centered around the upcoming festivities.

Focusing on prints and patterns, the upper of the shoe features a distinct Tianjin style print paired with panels of pony hair and snakeskin. Accenting the bold look is a complementary mix of gold and patent leather hits along the vamp of the shoe. Finishing up the loud celebratory take is a white midsole, gold Air Max unit, black rubber outsole and CNY jewel detail.

No official release date just yet, but expect the 2019 Nike Air Max 98 “Chinese New Year” to release sometime in February.
