The Year And Shoe of the Tiger

While February 14th in the U.S. marks the holiday which pairs of sneakers including the Nike Air Force 1 low and Big Nike high have been made to commemorate, not everyone’s going to be doing the Valentine’s Day thing. February 14th also marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year (as they follow a lunar calendar); and, this year is the year of the Tiger. To celebrate, sneaker customizer SBTG has decided to intricately illustrate the Nike Dunk low silhouette with a design borrowing cues from the 1941 fighter plane that the first American volunteer group in the Chinese Air Force painted on. This Nike Dunk low “Flying Tiger” is available for order now from RoyaleFam.
