For over ten years, Jordan Brand has graced the sneaker community with its special Lunar New Year-inspired colourways. With 2024 heralding the Year of the Dragon, the tradition lives on with the hotly-anticipated Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Year of the Dragon”, which seamlessly fuses the legendary creature with a well-chosen selection of textures and colour palette.
Featuring an enchanting mix of colours, the “Year of the Dragon” truly captures the vibrant spirit of the Lunar New Year festivities. The design takes inspiration from the mythical beast, evident in the “Oil Green” scaled leather overlays that gracefully embellish the shoe, mimicking its iconic skin and adding a layer of visual intrigue to the trainer.
These meticulously crafted details stand in contrast to the elegance of the “Sail” leather base, striking a balance between boldness and subtlety. “Metallic Gold” embroidered Jordan Wings grace the heel tabs, a nod to prosperity and wealth in Chinese culture, and “Dark Team Red” Nike Swooshes glides across the lateral and medial sidewalls, symbolising luck and happiness.
This sneaker is a treasure trove of cultural symbolism. Packed in a special edition shoebox with a bunch of exclusive accessories, the Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Year of the Dragon” will release on January 24th, so be sure to stay tuned to Captain Creps for the best opportunity to snag your preferred size!
