The detailed photos from @shanghaisole on Instagram show a gold silk-wrapped shoe embellished with both Nike and Year of the Dragon themes. Golden-headed dragons with violet and silver detailing are meticulously embroidered on the panels while distinctive celebratory embroideries on the toeboxes front the sneaker. The golden Nike Air logo is embroidered on the heel just above the repeating Chinese character “喜喜” — translating to double the happiness. “喜喜” pays homage to both Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day, which are occurring within days of each other. Final touches are found on the branded gold tongue tag, lace dubraes and gold lace aglets, while the cream outsole offers comfortable support and matching laces tie the luxurious iteration together for a clean finish.
Check out the shoe above. @shanghaisole on Instagram reports that the 2024 Nike Air Force 1 Low “Chinese New Year” will release via Nike SNKRS China on February 14 with a retail price tag of ¥2,599 RMB (approximately $365 USD).
