Nike CNY 2021 Sneakers  

It’s only October but for those of you who are already over 2020, here’s something for you to look forward to. Instagram user @zsneakerheadz just leaked images of what appear to be CNY 2021 sneakers from Nike to welcome the Year of the Ox.

The design

The Nike CNY 2021 sneakers come in the Nike SB Dunk Low silhouette, aka one of the most hyped sneaker models this year. As for the design on the sneakers, similar to the rest of the “What The” series, Nike has creatively mixed a variety of colours, prints and textures into 1 wild pair of kicks.

The right side is outfitted with multicolour paint splotches, red ostrich leather and a metallic silver Swoosh. The toe box is in a metallic copper, which further accentuates the huat aesthetic

The colour scheme of the left side may not be as auspicious as the right but it definitely has a striking design as well. Watercolour florals and a cobblestone beige panel are accompanied by a suede toe box and woodgrain Swoosh. If you look closely, there is also what appears to be a Chinese coin token embroidered on the lateral ankle for that all-important huat factor.

The heels of the sneakers sport the Chinese character ‘食’, which translates to “food”. We’re just as curious what food has to do with a pair of sneakers commemorating the Year of the Ox, but rest assured we will update you the minute Nike releases more information.

While Nike has yet to confirm this sneaker design, it won’t be the first time that Nike has released a CNY collection. To celebrate the Year of the Pig in 2019, Nike released a limited-edition Chinese New Year collection that combined patterns reflecting each of the 12 Chinese Zodiac signs onto classic Nike, Jordan Brand and Converse silhouettes.
