In honor of Chinese New Year, Jordan Brand celebrates with the release of the Air Jordan V Retro Low Chinese New Year. Opting to not use images directly linked to the Year of the Monkey. Jordan Brand decided instead to use kite-inspired graphics and corresponding tones as inspiration for this special release. Recognized as a Chinese invention, the kite has deep cultural meaning representing promises of good luck and well wishes. Aside from being just a low cut version of the traditional AJ 5 mid. The trimmed-down silhouette of the CNY also includes a hidden basketball court graphic and inspirations from fighter jets. Look for these to drop this weekend on Jordan.com and select global retail locations on January 23.
