UPDATE: It's almost time to ring in the Chinese New Year and what better way to do it than with a fresh pair of kicks. The Air Jordan 12 GS 'Chinese New Year' is dropping this weekend and we now have our best look yet at this festive release, care of Politics. This new set of images confirms that the upper is definitely the creamy hue we had seen in earlier images – 'Light Orewood Brown', to be precise. The Air Jordan 12 GS 'Chinese New Year' is dropping January 28 through Nike.com and select Jumpman stockists, so cop your pair and get to celebrating.
With the Year of the Rooster nearing, we finally get a closer look at Jordan Brand's small-foot offering in the upcoming 'Chinese New Year' Collection. Available exclusively in GS sizing, the commemorative make-up of the Air Jordan 12 features a base of off-white leather with matching woven-textured mudguards and heel pulls. Crimson red accents, gold-flecked outsoles, wood patterned details and Chinese characters on the tongue add a little something special to this limited edition release. Previous images of the make-up had shown it to be significantly more beige in colour than this latest set of images, though we're digging this clean-cut appearance.
