The Chinese New Year may be old news, but that does not mean that Nike is going to stop with its rabbit-themed releases anytime soon. The latest is the Air Jordan 7 Year of the Rabbit, a Chinese-inspired remake of the classic Air Jordan 7.

To sneakerheads, Air Jordans are like a fine wine -- they just get better with age. The shoe has a white body with red accents around the tongue, toebox and heel, complete with gold laces. The packaging is the real star of the show, as it has been given an extreme makeover complete with Chinese characters. There are no pricing details as of yet, but these shoes are expected to be released on May 1. Happy Chinese New Year, indeed.
