After the reveal of Tatum's signature "Taco Jay" sneakers, another Air Jordan 36 colourway has emerged online, this time inspired by the "Year Of The Tiger".

Their release will likely be one of the last in the Jordan 36 line as early images of the new Air Jordan 37 model recently surfaced, which sees a new look and new technology added for next year's NBA campaign.

However, the Jordan 36s are still among some of the best basketball shoes around right now, so if you're looking to stand out on the court, then these "Year Of The Tiger" sneakers could be for you.

That being said, here's everything we know about the next Jordan 36 colourway so far...

When Is The Air Jordan 36 Year Of The Tiger Release Date?

Unfortunately, there has been no word from Nike about the release of these "Year Of The Tiger" Jordan 36s just yet, leaving many outlets only going as far as to predict their arrival at some point in 2022.

That said, with the last few games in the NBA Finals fast approaching, there's a chance we may see these sneakers launch before the season ends on 20 June.

This is purely speculation on our behalf though, so make sure you check back in right here to stay up-to-date with the latest release date news.

Air Jordan 36 Year Of The Tiger Design

The "Year Of The Tiger" colourway features one of the most unique designs out of the entire Air Jordan 36 line-up.

The jacquard leno-weave uppers and full-length Zoom Air soles are completely covered in a vivid, rainbow-like pattern that includes bright red, orange, blue, and green hues.

This is offset by hints of black across the tongues, heels, and midsoles like most of the Air Jordan 36 designs.

The laces then feature a black patch complete with a golden tiger graphic, making direct reference to the symbol of the 2022 Chinese New Year.

Nike branding can then be found on the heel tabs dressed in red with "thirty six" embroidered just above in blue to round off the design.

Air Jordan 36 Year Of The Tiger Price

Much like the release date, there has been no word on exactly how much these sneakers will cost upon their arrival.

However, Jordan 36s usually retail for around $195 in adult sizing, so we'd expect these "Year Of The Tiger" sneakers to be similarly priced.

This is just speculation once again though, so stay tuned for further price updates once more information is announced.

The first place you'll likely these standout sneakers will be at the Nike store under the new releases, basketball, or Jordan subsections right now.
