Spring Festival, Lunar New Year, Chinese New Year - choose any name you'd like, but the celebration is still the largest holiday in the world. Chinese New Year marks the transition between lunar years on the Chinese calendar. Unlike the standard global calendar, lunar years are steeped in a rich lure.

Commonly celebrated with bursting fireworks and all-red-everything, Spring Festival carries themes of good fortune, family and good health to those across Asian and the globe abroad. Most of us are familiar with the red envelopes of money and fine food associated with Lunar New Year. But don't let the cash fool you, it symbolizes a token of prosperity in this new year.

We've taken inspiration from that gorgeous hue of red and integrated it into our 2020 Year Of The Rat Sneaker Weekender Collection. Armed with tough red construction and black detailing, our latest Weekender bag is perfect for celebrating the Year Of The Rat year around!

Starting us offis a trio of custom Air Jordan Retros by The ReMade. Mike Jordan's first, fourth and eleventh signature shoes got the custom treatment by The Remade in 2015, '16, and '17 respectively and they're spicier than Sriracha.

In the customs game, The ReMade stands as one of the freshest customizers around. Over the years he's played with Lunar New Year inspired Air Jordan customs and it all started with an Air Jordan 1. There's nothing stock about these kicks as every detail of the upper appeared to be fully remade by hand for the shoe. Red pebbled leather and buttery red suede are the two main players on these stunning sneakers making for a truly premium product. A branded tongue patch and Chinese characters on the ankle & heel are great, but the real standout is the red money envelope inspired removable hangtag. You'll surely have good luck with a pair of these tucked away safely in your new Shrine Co. Year Of The Rat Weekender.

The thoughtfulness that goes into these customs by The ReMade is just crazy. While all three of these shoes carry similar elements, they're each unique in their own right. Mighty dragon vibes across the midsole of these Air Jordan 4s offer a great pop of contrast against the shoe's expected red makeup. Adding gold to the mesh panels really tied the whole look together. Should we add some gold to our collection next year like these? Let us know what you think!

Luxury and details were A1 on these converted Air Jordan 11 '72-10's. All of the red patent leather was replaced with fine nubuck while the upper's tumbled leather was left untouched. Chinese characters for the new year adorned the heel and gold aglets were added to finish the Chinese New Year inspired look.

For some unknown reason, Jordan Brand has stayed away from all red CNY releases, but there's plenty of dope red Jays for you to rock this month. The Red Suede Air Jordan 5s, 'Toro' Air Jordan 4s and 'Varsity Red' Air Jordan 12s are all great options too.

Don't these perfectly match our Year Of The Rat Weekenders?

Whichever shoe you rock, make sure they're properly stored and protected when you're on the go. Cop one of our new Year Of The Rat Weekender bags and have your #TravelMadeEasy!
