The Chinese New Year has typically brought the themed color ups out in flocks and droves and this upcoming year is no different. The Year of the Tiger finds Nike crafting a special Cortez for the occasion and the shoe looks to be a smash for fans and new comers alike.

The golden horse hair shoe with silk screened nylon side panels that house golden tiger stripes that extend from liner to laces which are provided by Starks.  The accenting red is kept to a minimum and is only found on the right shoe. The shoes are slated to also come in some pretty snazzy packaging. While the shoe itself is pretty limited only 200 of the pairs will be served in a special shoebox complete with embossing and a special five-finger grip opening  taht resembles a bowling ball. As of now no pairs are slated for a US release. Via TSG
