2012 is the Year of the Dragon according to the Chinese Zodiac Calendar. Thus Nike continues its tradition of creating a new Air Force 1 for the occasion. This version of the Air Force 1 is even more momentous as it marks the 30th anniversary year for the historic sneaker. The sneaker features a silk-like upper with kimono inspired embroidery under a snakeskin swoosh. Leather accents and coated laces round out the package over printed insoles.
