Chinese New Year is too big of an international event for brands to not tap into the occasion with some limited edition sneakers. And New Balance are participating once again in 2020 for the Year of the Rat, this time opting for the UK-made 1500.
In typical high quality suede construction, sections of perforated and nappy leather add a further premium edge. The colourway itself is rather muted, with black, tan and brown, instead of the ubiquitous garish red editions.
Given many occasion-specific sneakers can sometimes only be worn once a year, this low-key edition has year-round versatility.
