Around the court side and there is Amar’e Stoudemire and Eric Koston. Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Omar Salazar in conversation about the nuances of sport mechanics… There’s been plenty of head-turning moments for attendees at Nike+ Festival of Sport 2012 in Shanghai. None, though, had the effect when Gentry Humphrey, the newly appointed executive for Nike Sportswear, walked in their midst. The reason was quite simple, Humphrey was wearing the new Nike Air Force 1 – Year Of The Dragon (YOTD) edition for Fall 2012.

After the first initial Nike Air Force 1 Year Of The Dragon in black and the Summer Special Edition, released during June of this year, this third iteration focuses on both Air Force 1′s 30th Anniversary and Year Of The Dagon on the Chinese horoscope. Dubbed as “White Dragon” edition by some and “Pearl” edition by others, designers at Nike Sportswear took inspirations from the long held Chinese belief that pearls are stones of longevity. The result is an amalgamation of dragon and pearl in this latest version.

Nike worked in reptilian scale-like details onto the premium white leather upper. Bordered along the Nike Swoosh marking and heel tab, a pearlescent finish to marks the edition’s exclusivity. Similar to the other two previous Year Of The Dragon editions, the word “dragon” in ancient Chinese calligraphy is embroidered to the heel tabs in red. Finally, Mother-of-Pearl dubre, each etched with “XXX”, completes the special design.

The Nike Air Force 1 – XXX Anniversary – Year Of The Dragon Fall Special Edition will be available starting September 28, at select Nike Sportswear retailers across China.

Release Date: September 28, 2012 (Friday)
