Official Looks at the “Chinese New Year” Air Max 98
Kick of the new year in steez.
As he “Chinese New Year” releases continue to surface, I’m getting a little excited. But there is no sneaker that I’m looking forward to more than this, the Air Max 98 “CNY”.
There’s a lot going on on this one — we’re not sure where to start, so we’ll start from the top down. It’s upper rocks a traditional Chinese art, similar to the “Tianjin” Foamposites from 2015, and it’s overlayed with golden pony hair and brown and gold snakeskin. It’s highlighted with pops of red patent leather, gold branding, teal heal tabs and its finished off with a sail midsole, gold Air unit and black rubber outsole.
Official images have just surfaced on the net, which you can peep in detail below. Release dates are still vague, but we’re expecting these to hit stores later this January. Stay tuned for dialed in dates and a comprehensive Where to Buy guide.
