Begins X New Balance Ms574 (Zhou Bichang)
Here's a taste of summer from New Balance and Begins, the Beijing boutique founded by Chinese singer, songwriter, fashion designer and all-round pop supernova Zhou Bichang. With its sonic-welded sky blue upper, sunny orange heel and silver fishing-lure lace jewel this smart release evokes lazy days spent dangling a fishing line. Add the earthy cork heel splice and illustrated insoles and you've got a richly composed colab that marks the growing influence of mainland China on Asian street culture. Available now at mita sneakers.
