Forgoing the stereotypical hongbao red, embroidered floral, and animal prints, the designers went with intertwining hues of red and black for the Primeknit upper, while a special logo with the Chinese character ao (meaning ‘Tibetan mastiff’) is placed on the tongue as a nod to this year’s zodiac animal.
