  • New Balance 574 Dragon Pack 2012< Water Dragon >
  • This was part of a collaboration series that is only made for display purposes. Five influential stores/labels from around Asia were tasked with conjuring up a their unique take on one of the five hero dragons that are based on the wood, fire, metal, earth and water elements.
  • Designed this for Limited Edt. - representing Singapore in the collaboration. Seeking inspirations from water elements, we designed the upper to be made of clear TPU plastic with a shiny blue tint to tell a story of the clear and transparent nature of water. Printed in reflective ink, an illustration of the Chinese dragon goes all round the shoe. And at the back collar, there are some reflective dragon scale hits. Finally instead of normal laces, we implemented elastic lacing system that uses a toggle to secure. This simulates the dragon whiskers, giving the shoes a unique character.
