Following an icy cold winter, spring has finally arrived in The Land of the Rising Sun. The warmer weather brings with it the start of sakura season – the time when the cherry blossoms start to bloom, engulfing parks in a sea of pastel pink. To herald the season's arrival in 2017, New Balance have produced a three-shoe collection, applying the delicate pigment to deconstructed versions of the 580, 300 and 996 silhouettes. Premium off-white nubuck complements the restrained pink pops, with stark white midsoles for an extra crisp finish. Being deconstructed releases, each model features a minimalist debossed upper and REVlite cushioning for lightweight comfort.
