Editor’s Notes: Last year, Jordan Brand unveiled a special variation of the Air Jordan 12 to celebrate Chinese New Year in the classic “Taxi” colorway. For 2019, the silhouette will commemorate the festive holiday once again, but this time mimicking the “Playoffs” color scheme, which was last seen on the exclusive 2016 “Wings” pair.
With 2019 marking as the Year of the Pig in the Chinese Lunar calendar, the sneaker is detailed with pigskin leather overlays, in addition to other luxe enhancements with satin and metallic gold accents. Availability is expected sometime in January.
Up next, a fragment design x Air Jordan 1 OG “Black Toe” is rumored to drop in 2019.
