The Year of the Dog is just a few months away and Jordan Brand is looking to celebrate with a commemorative Air Jordan 6. Certainly just one piece of a much larger offering, the 1991 produced silhouette highlights celebratory graphics that help ring in the Chinese zodiac.

Set to fireworks and lush floral accents, this dark-colored Air Jordan 6 denotes black overlays atop a tonal base filled with exploding firecrackers and embroidered plant life. The Air Jordan 6 “Chinese New Year” is said to drop in January 2018 although Jordan Brand has not confirmed those details at current time.

The ideation of the shoe is that the upper is made with ocean plastic content and a 3D-printed midsole made from recycled polyester and gillnets. In addition, the adidas brand will continue to phase out the use of plastic bags in its own retail stores, with the emphasis of it being completed by Q1 of 2016.
