Today, February 9, we’ll see our first Year of the Snake colorway from any brand. The Snake, this year’s Chinese zodiac symbol, was interpreted by Jordan in such a way that the official colorway is “multi-color.” Packaged in a two pair box, the YOTS Pack includes a Retro 1 High and a Melo M9.
These vibrant colorways are inspired from the snake’s ability to attack their prey by leveraging heat-sensory vision. Their evolved sixth sense allows the snake to track its prey through darkness, and strike in absolute surprise.
Made from the combination of suede and patent leather, the Retro 1 High in this pack also has an icy blue midsole which reveals a colorful designed pattern behind it. The M9 sports a red icy outsole and also sports a patent leather toe box and heel overlay. Both pairs of kicks have a snake eye lace tag to commemorate the new year. Mesh is used on both releases’ inner linings and on the tongue of the M9.
The Jordan Brand YOTS Pack will drop today, February 9, at select House of Hoops by Foot Locker locations and online at Footlocker.com. The shoes, which are sold together, retail for $300 and come with a specially designed Year of the Snake box.
