7 January 2012, Singapore – The snake is wise and patient, it will be acceptable for the snake to wait it out and not make rash decisions. The best way to put this is that it will be a year of consolidation, not so much moving ahead. So to prepare yourself for the year of the Snake, check out New Balance’s boldly coloured, snakeskin inspired 574 sneakers.
The snake symbol in the Chinese Zodiac is associated with enigma and astuteness. Pairing intense colours with geometric patterns, the New Balance 2013 Year of the Snake 574 Pack brings to life the spirit of the snake.
The first three options sport a mix of snake-scale embossed synthetic leather, nylon and suede in monotones of black, joyous red and forest green. Combined with tri-colour gradient round laces that conjure snake-like twisting motions, these sneakers boast interesting details.
To take a bit of the bite out of the potent look, each sneaker is adorned with subtle gold accents on the tongue tab and the heel tab in the form of an emblem that features the Chinese character for Snake. There is also a removable insole decorated with multi-colour snakeskin graphics.
For those who like to experiment with alternative looks, the New Balance 2013 Year of the Snake 574 Pack offers a fourth version featuring reptilian prints in an eclectic mix of black, red and green
The New Balance 2013 Year of the Snake 574 Pack is available at all New Balance outlets.
