The Nike Chinese Zodiac New Year Series continues in 2011 with a brand new pack of sneakers honoring the Year of the Rabbit. As an ode to the Chinese New Year, which begins on February 3rd, Nike Sportswear put together a two-pack of Tennis Classic’s that includes a pair for the guys and a pair of the ladies. Keeping it clean and simple, both sneakers sport a white leather base with the men’s version featuring hits of gold on the Swoosh, heel tab and heel spine, and the women’s version using pink in all the same places. To bring together the Year of the Rabbit representation, a small graphic of a white rabbit in the center of a red circle appears on each insole and the year is split between to the two tongue tags with the right tongue consisting of the “20” and the left filling in the “11”.
It’s unknown if they sneakers are scheduled to release in the US, but online reseller Kix-Files is accepting pre-orders now with an for anybody who’s interested in getting their hands on a pair.
