Every year, Nike and Jordan Brand will typically pay its respects to Chinese culture and heritage with the release of Chinese New Year-themed footwear. The celebrations are arriving in just a few months time, and we’re already getting a glimpse into what the Jumpman family has up its sleeves for the Year of the Tiger festivities. On deck is this luxe Air Jordan 6 Low “Chinese New Year” colorway that has just surfaced.

This impending installment essentially takes the classic AJ 6 “GMP” palette from the 2021 London Games and utilizes it in on its low-cut model. Smooth leather uppers are given a bright white complexion, while shiny silver accents coat the throat overlays and gilded finishes apply to the Jumpman logos on the throat and heels, as well as the trimming on the heel counters. Milky skins are also distributed to the tongues and spoilers for added flair.

You’ll find more golden hits see their way to the midsole molds and oversized Jumpman insignias on the outsoles, and a majority of the bottoms is designed with a traditional icy mold.

A release date has not been confirmed by Nike yet, but you can likely anticipate these to launch ahead of the February 2022 holiday.

In other footwear news, Familia’s Nike Dunk Low Pro SB “First Ave” is closing out 2021.
