Arriving next year, here is an official look at both pairs from the New Balance 1906U Lunar New Year Pack. This pack also introduces a new version of the 1906, the 1906U, which is aptly named for its ‘utility’ focus. The New Balance 1906U features an updated design highlighted by the new arrangement of uppers consisting of a complex interplay of overlaid panels—a style that should bring high-end footwear to mind like Maison Margiela and Balenciaga.
The New Balance 1906U Lunar New Year Pack celebrates the upcoming holiday as it looks to incorporate a mix of materials that complements the intricate paneling and layered design of the upper. A closer look unveils Jade Green insoles paying homage to the respected jade stone in Eastern culture, especially within China. Arriving in your choice of Pink or White, each colorway comes with recurring features such as mesh tongues, perforations on the toe, an N-ERGY sole and “N” branding on the side panels.
Retailing for $175, the New Balance 1906U Lunar New Year Pack is now available at select international retailers, while a stateside release is expected to take place early on in 2024 both in-store and online via NewBalance.com.
