New Balance Lunar New Year ''Year of the Tiger'' Collection.
Celebrating the Lunar New Year, New Balance has also released a special collection of sneakers that refer to the Chinese zodiac sign Year of the Tiger, balanced with soft color blocks that make them real eye-catchers:
Inspired by the iconic New Balance 574 from the 90s, the New Balance 57/40 'Eclipse Nightwatch Green' features a suede and mesh upper and a chunky outsole for extreme comfort and a casual look. It comes together with the colorway 'Black With Poppy' and refers to the camouflage colors of the Year of the Tiger.
The New Balance XC-72 is based on an older model from the 70s and has now returned with red and black tiger camo stripes added in the center of the toes and across the heels. It has shades of gray on the sidewalls and the suede overlays on the toecap and heels are solid black. The oversized N logos stand out with a lighter gray hue and the ribbed heel shape is adorned with a mustard yellow exterior.
The New Balance 327 Lunar New Year Collection features bold designs focused on contrast and detail. It comes in 2 colorways and features a neutral upper covered in suede, with mismatched embellishments on the eyes. The 327's signature large-scale N branding stands out in contrast, while a tiger camouflage tongue label serves as a subtle nod to the Year of the Tiger.
