2023 is already gearing up to be one of the hottest years for sneakers. We're only two weeks in and already we've been blessed with countless coveted collaborations and exclusive editions, and the next seven days is certainly no different. From the Air Force 1 Low to the Dunk Low, if you're a fan of hyped basketball shoes then you're going to want to pay attention. For your best chance to secure your size, keep it locked right here on Ox Street, and if you see any other pairs that you think should have been on this list, make sure to let us know over on Instagram and don't forget to follow us as well for the best content that the Asian sneaker community has to offer!
Kicking it all off is the Air Jordan 1 Low OG "Year of the Rabbit." Celebrating Chinese New Year, this limited edition pair is crafted from premium leather and suede and comes with plenty of bunny-inspired details throughout. Traditional Chinese colors for luck and prosperity can be found throughout, and all of this sits on top of a creamy Air midsole that's giving us serious vintage vibes. If you're still unsure whether or not to cop, don't ponder any longer as this is limited to just 5,000 pairs worldwide.
If you're a massive fan of 2001's "Brazil" but you're in the market for something a little different, make sure you check out the Nike Dunk Low "Reverse Brazil." Completely inverting the '01 OG from heel to toe, yellow leather panels are overlaid on top of an apple green base for a familiar-yet-different aesthetic. All of this then sits on top of a crisp white midsole that'as as comfortable as it gets. Sure to be a future classic, secure your size right now before it's too late.
It's been a while since an AF1 has stopped us in our tracks as much as the Premium Goods x Nike Air Force 1 Low "The Bella" has. Made in collaboration with the Jennifer Ford-owned boutique, this special edition colorway places luxury materials at the forefront. Crafted predominantly from tumbled leather, quilted textures hit the lateral and medial sidewalls while jewelry-inspired beads are finely stitched onto the Swooshes and heel badge for an extra opulent look and feel.
Another CNY-themed drop, if the aforementioned Air Jordan 1 Low isn't your cup of tea, make sure you take a look at the Nike Dunk Low "Year of the Rabbit." Inspired by White Rabbit Candy that you'd find in any good Chinese confectionary store, it features the exact same colorway as the beloved sweet. A fuzzy red Swoosh shoots through the lateral and medial panels as a nod to the fourth animal in the zodiac, and all of this sits on top of a crystal clear midsole.
And last but not least, we have the Slam Jam x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Triple Black." As stealthy as it gets, this special edition colorway pays homage to the basketball model's 40th birthday. Dipped in an all-black color scheme, luxe leather makes up most of the upper, while mesh paneling hits the laterals and medials. Of course, you can't talk about this Air Force 1 without mentioning the toebox perforations which have been reworked to form Slam Jam's legendary logo.
