When the '17 Chinese New Year Air Jordan Pack was announced at the end of last year, a lot of us were wondering what kind of access the Jumpman would allow us to have over here in the states. Fortunately, it looks like none of us are going to have to scramble getting this year's 'CNY' releases because one of the largest sneaker hubs in existence, Footlocker, will be carrying the kicks upon the three sneaker pack's release date.
The kicks included for this year's festivities include two separate colorways of the AJ XII and the other a AJ XXXI silhouette. The Air Jordan XII for the guys features a reflective upper and looks reminiscent of the highly popular 'Taxi' color scheme. The Air Jordan XII for the ladies features a cream colored upper complete with red accents, red being a celebratory color in China to mark the new year. And lastly, the AJ XXXI features a black and white color scheme similar to the AJ XII mentioned earlier as well as a translucent outsole. All of the kicks feature bamboo either on the midsole tab or midsole itself and Chinese calligraphy can be found in the detailing as well.
Come January 28th, the kicks will not only be available at a wife arrange of Chinese Jordan Brand retailers, but stateside as well. The guy's AJ XII 'CNY' will be priced at $250, the AJ XXXI 'CNY' is set at $200, and the ladies AJ XII 'CNY' has yet to be priced at the moment. Sometimes things should remain exclusive but sorry to our people overseas, you can't keep the heat to yourselves this time around.
