Nike is celebrating China’s Qixi festival, aka Chinese Valentine’s Day, with a duo of Classic Cortez Nylon colorways for Men’s and Women’s. The special edition pack features two colorways inspired by the “Dusk till Dawn” Chinese folklore of when Niulang and Zhinu reunited on the 7th day of the 7th month in the Lunar calendar.

The Men’s edition features a gradient “Dark Obsidian” hue and the Women’s version a “Flash Crimson” wash, each boasting galaxy stars to represent the fading sky of the summer night. The constellation of Vega (Zhinu star) and Altair (Niulang star) are printed on the heel counter in glow-in-the-dark ink, while a tongue tab branded with “Today is the Day” rounds out the limited edition pair.

Nike’s Classic Cortez Nylon “Qixi Festival” pack will launch exclusively in China on August 17 via Nike’s SNKRS app and select retailers. For more new releases, check out Nike’s React Element 87 in “Dark Grey” and “Desert Sand.”
