Following Nike’s Kobe VI China-Only shoe, the eagerly awaited 2011 Air Jordans are the next to have a Chinese New Year commemorative release, with a special colorway for the China market. This week, Sneaker News had a preview of the packaging, which shows a predominately red box with gold Chinese-inspired decals and Chinese characters.

Though the 26th Air Jordan is currently without a release date, basketball player Dwayne Wade debuted the shoes on Christmas Day, wearing a red and white pair at the highly billed Los Angeles Lakers-Miami Heat game.
