Brands like Nike and Adidas have been making unique Chinese New Year colorways of their shoes Nike Kyrie 6 CNY and Adidas DRose 10 CNY to celebrate the start of the year in the Chinese calendar for years now, and thanks to its past success, this year will be no different.

Both colorways will be available in family sizing due to the success of the Kyrie 6 already this year. One Nike Kyrie 6 CNY is predominantly black with many brightly colored highlights. And the other is mainly yellow with similarly colored hints.
Adidas will hope to compete with Nike this year with many different CNY colorways of their favorite shoes. But the most interesting one is the CNY DRose 10 that has already been released in China.

Derrick Rose has seen a return to form over the last year. And after touring China with Adidas in the offseason a CNY version of his new model was almost guaranteed.
Covered in all black, the Adidas DRose 10 CNY is more subtle than the other shoes on the list. With its detail coming in the form of a special Chinese New Year-themed pattern around the logo on the tongue.
The last two shoes of note, this Chinese New Year, is Jordan’s, with designs inspired by traditional Chinese coins. The coin pattern will be put on an Air Jordan 34, Jordan’s latest performance shoe, and a Jordan 13.
These colorways are part of Nike’s CNY collection. They have taken shoes from 4 different critical years, relevant to Nike or China, and the Air Jordan 34 and Air Jordan 13 should be released this month for $180 and $190, respectively.
