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. Completing the shoe is ‘貳拾’ on the tongues which translates to ’12’ in Chinese and clear pods on the outsole. The Jordan Air Jordan 12 Retro 'Chinese New Year' (White/Black-Varsity Red-Light Orewood Brown) is available soon at and at a VILLA location near you!

Celebrating 'Chinese New Year'

An Explosion of Light and Sound

As Chinese communities around the globe prepare to launch their new year celebrations, the Jordan brand is launching their new Retro 12 in celebration of the colorful holiday. The festivities start on January 28th and ends February 2nd. This is just enough time to get the highly anticipated sneaker and enjoy the jubilee as it celebrates with large parades, dragon dances, reunions and elaborate dinners.

Fun Fact about ‘CNY’: Per this joyous holiday, 2017 is the year of the tenth Chinese zodiac— year of the Fire Rooster. The rooster is said to be active, popular, amusing and charming. They are also known to enjoy the spotlight and can be a bit boastful. In comparison to this fact, the Jordan 12 Retro ‘CNY’ is said to transfer that same rewarding vitality.

As tradition, the CNY delivers red envelops with money inside to be placed under children’s pillows. So, to honor that custom in good form, VILLA wishes everyone good fortune and happiness!
