Original Story (12/09/20): While a “CNY” Nike SB Dunk Low has already been unveiled for 2021, it looks like we will also be getting an Air Jordan 1 Low to celebrate the Lunar New Year celebration.
This iteration of the Jordan 1 Low brings back the model’s classic OG shape, comes adorned with Chinese imagery throughout the upper, is dressed in the popular “Bred” black/red color scheme and blocking, and features a canvas construction. Floral and Wings logo embroidery appears in gold on the toe box, with ox embroidery appearing on the other panels to ring in 2021, the Year of the Ox. A red lace with golden tassel is adorned around the ankle, matching the golden Wings embroidery on the heel. The shoe also comes in a commemorative special box and packaging.
Check out official images of the Air Jordan 1 Low OG “CNY 2021” below and stay tuned for official release info. Chinese New Year is celebrated on February 12th next year, so expect a release around that time.
