Chinese New Year may be well in the rearview mirror, but the party never stops for New Balance. After releasing a 2002R “Year of the Ox” and a 920 “Year of the Ox,” the Boston-based footwear brand has prepped two CNY-centric takes on its 574. One is bright and bold while the other is more muted, but both use a familiar holiday color scheme to drive home their festive inspiration.First up is a “Team Red” colorway that accents its rich red upper with a black midfoot N logo trimmed in gold, a black heel tab with gold branding and black details around the midfoot. Next is a “Black” makeup that opts for a dark and stark upper, relegating red to the heel tab and around the collar while retaining the same gold-trimmed black midfoot logo as its compatriot. Both also feature special gold branding on the tongue tag and a leaping bull on the insole. Two-tone ENCAP midsoles and black rubber outsoles complete both looks.The New Balance 574 Chinese New Year collection is available now on the New Balance webstore. Each pair is priced at $80 USD.Need more New Balance in your life?
