New Balance is renowned for its innovative designs and memorable collaborations, and this trend continues with the upcoming release of the New Balance Warped Runner Lunar New Year edition. Joining the ranks of New Balance's 2024 Lunar New Year collection, which already includes exciting new colorways for the New Balance 610 and 1906U models, the Warped Runner adds a distinct flair to the lineup.
Distinguishing itself from the other pairs in this collection, this Warped Runner features a neutral color scheme. It boasts a predominantly black color palette, giving it a sleek and versatile look. The shoe's upper features durable suede overlays resting on a woven base, both rendered in deep, dark hues that exude elegance.
What makes this edition special is the subtle yet striking jade accents on the sockliner and insole, seamlessly tying it to the overarching theme of the Lunar New Year Collection. This addition not only adds a touch of color but also pays homage to the cultural significance of jade in many Lunar New Year celebrations. The design is rounded off with a chunky black midsole equipped with New Balance's innovative FuelCell cushioning technology and a clear rubber outsole.
The New Balance Warped Runner Lunar New Year has already seen a release via Up There in Australia, while a global release will take place in the coming weeks through New Balance and select retailers online and in-store.
