A new iteration of the Air Jordan 12 has surfaced that could potentially be 2019's "Chinese New Year" colorway.
The pair surfaced on the Chinese blog Weibo. It appears to feature a black satin upper, white iguana leather overlay, and metallic gold detailing. The major detail is the multi-colored pattern that can be partially seen donning the inner lining. The graphic could be tied to the annual celebration.
Jordan Brand also released a retro model for "Chinese New Year" in 2018 as well. A black Air Jordan 6 was covered in red and gold floral embroidery to celebrate the Year of the Dog.
