Nike Kyrie 6 Chinese New Year sneakers

Basketball fans can bring in the Year of the Rat in style with this latest take on the Kyrie 6.

Having already revealed both an Air Max 1 and an Air Jordan 34 model celebrating the Chinese New Year, Nike has now given us a first look at yet another style. This time the brand is taking one of its favourite basketball silhouettes, the Kyrie 6, and decking it out in a new festive design.

Release date: January 2020

Price: Unknown

Where to buy: Nike

The style sees a bright yellow upper paired with a black panel running from the toe box to the laces. The black panelling is decorated with multicoloured patterns in the shape of florals, fireworks and other festive motifs to bring in the Year of the Rat.

Continuing the eye-catching design, an icy, translucent strap covers the midfoot, while bright purple laces, a bright blue heel tab and a green collar add further pops of colour.

A bright yellow outsole layered over a black midsole meanwhile rounds out the design.

Similar to two other Chinese New Year designs, no release information about the Kyries is available at this stage. As the New Year falls on 25 January though, we should be seeing them land sometime soon.

When they do drop, they'll likely be available first from the US Nike site, followed by a release on the Australian online store. They may also be available through usual Nike stockists such as JD Sports, Platypus Shoes and Hype DC, so be sure to keep an eye out.

Picture not described

If you're looking for other upcoming sneaker drops, Nike has also just released a first look at a pair of canary yellow Air Jordan 1s that it will release in collaboration with Off-White.

The brand has also just announced a new Air Force 1 style to honour Black History Month in February.
