Nike & Jordan Brand YEAR OF THE DRAGON pack - back image

Here we take a look at the Nike & Jordan Brand "Year Of The Dragon" collection. We've seen numerous pictures of them on the internet, but there are no definite release information just yet. However, according to someone at Nike Basketball - The Zoom KD IV & the Kobe VII are slated to be a CHINA-specific release. Now for those UN-familiar with the Chinese calendar, Chinese New Year is January 23rd in 2012. They shift the dates each year since the Chinese calendars have shorter days then its counterpart, our normal calendar that consist of 365 days. 

I am sure a lot of Chinese and NON-Chinese alike will be clamoring over these kicks, especially being that the Dragon is considered to be the most sacred of the twelve animals in the Chinese calendar and it is also the ONLY one that is a mythical animal while the other eleven are regular animals.
