As we inch ever closer to the start of Chinese New Year on February 10th, Nike finally showcased its designs for the Air Force 1 “Year of the Snake” pack. Somewhat of a departure from the last AF1 release related to the Chinese Zodiac, the YOTS edition comes in both Low and High forms. The low-cut variant features a lush application of red leather intermixed with red snakeskin-patterned panels. A black leather Swoosh brings out a nice contrast while the wrap-around sidewall, also in snakeskin pattern, further enhances the central theme. Hints of black/purple outsole and purple inner lining help in completing the overall design. If variety is what you’re looking for, then this pack’s high-cuff version is the one for you. Framed by smooth black leather, each of the panels features a different snakeskin pattern. The arrangement continues on to the eyelets, the Nike Swoosh, and its ankle cuff. Like the low version, subtle finishes and details help to execute the lush design theme. Expect both to appear in Nike’s premium retail outlets near you soon.
