This coming Monday, January 26th, the Chinese New Year kicks off for 2009, which is 4706 on Chinese Lunar Calendar. This year is the Year of the Ox and as always Nike has put together a few sneakers to celebrate the event, one of them being this Blazer Premium CL Quickstrike. The sneakers are done up in various shades of grays, white and black in honor of the Asian Water Buffalo which was an animal praised by Asian farmers. Red patent leather was added to the heel tab where there is also a gold image of an ox.
From what our sources tell us the Year of the Ox Nike Blazer Premium CL Quickstrike was only released in Asia. But dont quote us on that as others are saying differently. Either way its a Quickstrike, so your gonna have to hunt for em. Or just snatch em up eBay where there are plenty of sizes up for sale and sit back and relax until they arrive in the mail.
