A couple months back the Jordan Brand came out with a pair of zodiac-inspired kicks; now, a new version is set for release labeled the Year of the Rabbit 2011 Sneakers. Since Michael Jordan's zodiac sign is the rabbit, it's only fitting that these shoes are set to hit the stores this year.

The updated Year of the Rabbit 2011 Sneakers are more subtle in design. Instead of the contrasting themes of white and the intricately patterned gray, the upper section is now toned down to one color. There are accents of gold and red, since the colors are a symbol of good luck and fortune in Chinese culture. Although these two colors aren't featured as prominently as the last pair of kicks, fans will nonetheless see this as a collector's item and appreciate the detailed design.
