Jordan Brand is set to honor the Chinese New Year with this all-new colorway of the Air Jordan XX9.

Inspired by water, which has a deep connection to ancient Chinese culture, this pair comes in a blue force, white, black and light blue lacquer colorway. They feature a blue-based upper with a unique water and texture paint-like graphic throughout. White and black accent the laces, liner, insoles and branding along with a teal midsole. A full icy blue translucent outsole, was added to symbolize what water possess, being perfectly clear and mysterious, while also being invisible but ever-changing.

The 'Year Of The Goat' Air Jordan XX9 hits nike.com as well as select Jordan Brand retailers on Wednesday, Feb. 18 in limited quantities. In addition, matching apparel will be available to coincide with the release.
