New Balance "Chinese Opera Mask" Exclusive
New Balance just got funky on that ass like an ole batch a collard greens!!! This shit here, this shit here, this shit here!?!?!?!?! That ole shit wasn't nuthin', it wasn't nuthin'. This shit here, this shit here...
The Asian New Balance design team has already debuted the 576 Chinese Opera Pack (reviewed on Kicks-n-Jams previously right here) but now they've just mixed it up in a blender and delivered a whole new treat for your feet! Drawing on the inspired Leftover Pack theme, (check that right here) New Balance drops a limited version (576 pairs available only in Southeast Asian markets) Chinese Opera 576 that delivers a different colorway for each foot!!! I thought I loved the original opera pack but these have just sent me into paroxysms of shoe geek joy!!!
High quality materials mixed with an overall red and green colorway and combined with multiple Chinese Opera signifiers (check the tongue, mask, heel, and lace lock) set off this well thought out sneaker. STREEThing is gonna deliver an interview with the designers and I for one cannot wait to read it.
