If you ask most experienced Air Jordan collectors what their favorite colorway of the Jordan 12 silhouette is, the answer you’ll likely receive is the “Taxi” colorway of the sneaker. Unfortunately however, the most recent retro of the Taxis took place in 2013, meaning they likely won’t be seeing a return anytime soon.

There is a silver lining, though – Jordan Brand has just recently unveiled a new Taxi-inspired colorway of the Jordan 12 dubbed the “Chinese New Year” edition. The new colorway follows the color scheme of the Taxi colorway, but has the silhouette donning an array of detailed textures on the mudguard and heeltab. Additionally, the new colorway will feature a special Chinese New Year logo on the tongue and insole while the look is rounded out with a fully reflective upper.

The Air Jordan 12 “Chinese New Year” is set to release on January 28, 2017 for a retail price of $250 USD.
