As the year comes to an end, Chinese New Year approaches! With 2023 marking the Year of the Rabbit in the Lunar Calendar, the celebratory releases have already started filtering through. So far, we’ve had a first look at Jordan Brand’s Year of the Rabbit offering, which features the Jordan Legacy 312 and the Air Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT 2. Nike have also confirmed that they’ll be releasing a pair of themed Nike Dunk Lows.
New Balance are set to celebrate Chinese New Year with a mega-collection of some of their hottest silhouettes of the moment. Known as the ‘Lunar New Year Collection’, the lineup comprises both heritage and modern classics, including the NB550, 2002R, 574 and 9060. Across the collection, the colourways of the pairs are predominantly white, cream and grey with hits of brown. Accenting the pairs is the auspicious touch of deep garnet red, which can be found on the lacing, NB branding and uppers.
The New Balance ‘Lunar New Year Collection’ will become available on January 2 via atmos and New Balance, with atmos kicking off the raffle online on December 23.
