Nike continues on the trend of celebrating the Chinese Zodiac with a “Year of the Horse” release in its iconic Air Max 1 silhouette. The grey textured leather and suede upper was inspired by thoroughbred horses, and is complemented with jade green lining, Air unit and outsole, and metallic gold Swoosh and accents. A deep red “Year of the Horse” logo adorns the tongue and heel, while an engraved gold lace tab reads Nike and “great success with the arrival of the horse” in Chinese. The special edition drops January 9, 2014 in time for Chinese New Year at the end of next month.
