Every year Jordan Brand celebrates Chinese New Year with a new colorway on one of their Air Jordan Retro models. For 2019, it looks like the Air Jordan 12 will be receiving the popular CNY treatment as a nod to the Year of the Pig.
This celebrated iteration of the shoe features a Black satin upper with White textured overlays atop a matching White rubber sole. Metallic Gold detailing and multicolored pattern on the inner lining, which could be a nod to the celebration of CNY, completes the design.
