Feb 14, 2010 heralds the year of the metal element Tiger, one of the most Aggressive, attractive and powerful in the Chinese zodiac. The metal tiger is never to be challenged, but admired and revered.

SBTG Basics special edition “Feline Fury” AF1 and Dunk Hi feature animal camo on the swoosh, metal vent monogram on side wall, and the Chinese “Tiger” character inscribed on the heel in metallic gold. Fire for the feet.

SBTG salutes the fighter plane art used by the notoriously successful “Flying Tigers” of 1941: the first American volunteer group in the Chinese Air Force.

The Flying Tiger features a freehand-replicated illustration of the namesake 1941 icon, toebox sawtooth nose art, bullet hole print and metal vent monogram on side wall. This sneaker is part of the SBTG Premium collection.

Detailed images of all SBTG sneakers for the Chinese New Year follow after the jump.
