Nike’s Chinese New Year collection celebrating the Year of the Ox is filled with stand-out releases such as the Air Jordan 1 Low and the Air Jordan 5 Low. However, the release that takes the cake may be collection’s Dunk Low.
Upon initial inspection, we see that the Nike Dunk Low CNY features a firecracker packaging-themed design, dressed in light blue perforated leather with darker blue leather overlays covered in firework-themed graphics. However, the design goes much deeper than that. These light and dark blue layers on the shoe can be removed to reveal a red leather layer underneath, similar to how firecrackers are usually wrapped in red underneath their external packaging. Once you light a firecracker, this red layer is destroyed, leaving behind charred remains and remnants of black gunpowder. This is represented with another layer — a black a grey leather layer hidden underneath the red one.
The Nike Dunk Low CNY “Firecracker” launches January 22nd on SNKRS. Check out official images of the shoe below.
