NIKE SPORTSWEAR: YEAR OF THE SNAKE COLLECTION

leave a comment »

SNAKE

In celebration of 2013 as the Year of the Snake on the Chinese lunar calendar, Nike introduces a Nike Sportswear collection of Chinese zodiac footwear inspired by Kobe Bryant and the Year of the Snake respectively. Ever since Nike unveiled its Year of the Horse collection in 2002, fans have eagerly anticipated new collections based on the Chinese lunar calendar concept. This year marks Nike’s 12th such release and completes a full cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

The Nike Sportswear designs feature signature colors of black, purple, red, and gold with snakeskin-inspired patterns. 2013 corresponds to two characters — 癸巳 (“Gui Si”) — in the Chinese sexagenary cycle (a cycle of sixty terms used for recording days or years). The Chinese seal pattern composed of a snake and the two characters 癸巳 (“Gui Si”) incorporates the serpentine shape into an embroidered seal making this collection particularly unique.

农历蛇年将至,岁在癸巳,祥蛇献瑞。耐克以“蛇道”为主题,打造全新蛇年生肖系列产品。从2002年马年生肖鞋款登场开始,以生肖概念而打造的耐克鞋款就成为鞋迷们在中国年前期待的焦点。今年是耐克连续第12年为中国农历新年发布特别产品,实现了耐克十二生肖全系列的完美收关。

以自身的威胁性让各队敌手闻之色变,因此获得“黑曼巴”的封号。2013年耐克蛇年系列,以科比及中国蛇年为设计灵感,并采用代表科比的黑色、紫色、金色,以及蛇纹为主要设计。而2013年适逢中国天干地支中的“癸巳”年,耐克特别以蛇与“癸巳”两字结合的印鉴图案,将科比在篮球运动的精神与中国文化融合,使蛇年系列产品的设计更为深刻细致。

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 CMFT
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Nike Air Force 1, Nike releases the Nike Air Force 1 CMFT, a new member of the Family of Force and a top pick for the Year of the Snake. The Nike Air Force 1 CMFT boasts the exact iconic profile of the original Nike Air Force 1 but is enhanced using modern innovations. By incorporating a slip-in Lunarlon cushioning midsole and Nike Air unit in the heel, the Nike Air Force 1 CMFT is the ultimate in functionality and comfort. The Year of the Snake version of the Nike Air Force 1 CMFT is mainly red, an auspicious color in China, and features gold and red stitches on the Nike Swoosh, purple lining and outsole, and red snake print leather. The product exudes quality and style. Details including a snake eye deubré and a tongue made of softer breathable material with a seal pattern of the two characters “癸巳” fit the Year of the Snake motif.

在AIR FORCE 1诞生30年之际,家族新成员NIKE AIR FORCE 1 CMFT成为蛇年系列首选,该鞋款采用LUNARLON缓震鞋垫搭配后跟气垫,大幅提升功能性与舒适性。NIKE AIR FORCE 1 CMFT鞋身以红色为主色调,突显年节气氛。在NIKE SWOOSH上运用金、红两色交错的车缝线,以及紫色内里及外底,搭配红色蛇纹皮革,展示出极佳的质感。铭牌上的蛇眼设计,鞋舌以更柔软的透气材质打造,上有“癸巳”印鉴图案,呈现蛇年主题,打造完美生肖鞋款。

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 HI CMFT
The Nike Air Force 1 high-top silhouette has been one of the most iconic basketball sneakers of the last 30 years — so the Year of the Snake collection wouldn’t be complete without one. The sleek, seductive shoe is mostly black with the toe and sides made of python print leather. The classic ankle strap design provides extra support around the ankles and presents a visual consistency with previous Nike AF1 collections. The seal pattern of the two characters “癸巳” on the heel echoes the Chinese motif. The Nike Swoosh in red and purple snake print is perhaps the most eye-catching feature of the shoe while a concealed Lunarlon drop-in midsole offers the ultimate in high performance comfort.

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 高帮款是30年来最经典的篮球鞋款,蛇年款同样采用高帮COMFORT版本,鞋身以神秘的黑色为主轴,鞋头及鞋侧运用蟒蛇纹皮革,呈现有如尊贵华丽的质感。经典高帮皮环设计增强踝部支撑机能,同时带给人们NIKE AIR FORCE 1一贯以来的鞋面视觉特色。后跟“癸巳”印鉴图案,呼应中国元素,红紫色蛇纹NIKE SWOOSH,更有画龙点睛效果。

Available now at CONCRETE.

Since 2002, Nike has put out a Chinese Zodiac Air Force 1 on an annual basis with the exception of 2007-2010 which the model was replaced by Air Woven 360 and Nike Dunk High (Year of the Pig 2007), Nike FREE Trail (Year of the Rat 2008), Nike Air Max 1 and Blazer Mid (Year Of the Ox 2009), Nike Dunk Low and Cortez (Year of the Tiger 2010).

2013 is the Year of the Snake. So it would only make sense for the Air Force 1 with the all snakeskin upper treatment. These cold-blooded kicks will be set free on the 18th of december, 2012 at CONCRETE.
