Jordan Brand is celebrating the Chinese New Year with the Air Jordan 12. At first glance, the Air Jordan 12 "Chinese New Year" appears to be another retro of the "Taxi" 12, one of the silhouettes most recognizable colorways. While the color blocking is, in fact, very similar the upcoming Air Jordan 12 is a lot different from the OGs.

The Air Jordan 12 "Chinese New Year" features textured black panels on the sides of the sneakers, a white upper, and gold accents on the lace eyelets and Jumpman tabs. Chinese lettering is incorporated on the tongue and insoles. Shining light on these reveals a full reflective upper.

The Air Jordan 12 "Chinese New Year" is scheduled to release on January 28, 2017 for $250.
