SHOP: Air Jordan 12 GS CNY — Available NOW on Kixify
Joining alongside the Air Jordan 12 3M Reflective will be this GS/GG-exclusive variation of the silhouette in celebration of Chinese New Year.
Flaunting a color palette that correlates with Chinese culture, the sneaker is defined by a creamy off-white upper with bright red accents adorning the inner lining and portion of the tongue. In addition, woodgrain eyelets and miniature branded panels (reflective of bamboo) on the sides, further complement the design.
Other distinguishable elements include textured leather implemented across its forefoot and back heel tab, alongside Chinese text of ‘貳拾’ evidenced on the tongues, which translates to ’20’ and signifies Jordan Brand’s years of existence in the Chinese market. Finally, a crisp white outsole completes the profile.
Update: (01/17/2017) Select retailers overseas have the model scheduled to release on January 21 first.

Renz Ofiaza, News: This pair looks really nice and one of the better renditions of the silhouette recently. The materials and colorway look solid. Hopefully it’s not exclusive to Asia.
