Although several CNY sneakers have piqued the interest of the general sneaker-loving public, the most anticipated just might be the Air Max 98 — a shoe that touts a maximalist medley of homage-filled colors, materials, and patterns. Using teal, red, and gold for the base colors, and featuring a masterful mix of six different materials ranging from snakeskin to patent leather — all of which draw from past CNY collections — the shoe combines the “Year Of The Pig” pack’s traditional Bai Jia Yi quilted pattern with “What The”-style embellishments to great effect. For a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it finishing touch of detail, a pair of hands clasped in prayer then appears on the simple black outsole. On the lower part of the shoe, it features snakeskin and pony hair while Red patent leather is also seen. In addition we have Teal accents, a Reflective racing stripe, speckled detailing on the rope laces and Gold hints. Other details includes a White midsole, Black on the outsole and praying hands.
