New Balance HS77   Dragon Boat Festival Customs | By Zhijun Wang

Straight out of the water and onto your feet, Beijing designer Zhijun Wang puts together a creative sneaker to commemorate the yearly Dragon Boat Festival celebrated throughout eastern Asia. Choosing the New Balance HS77 silhouette, Zhijun fills the bottom half of the shoe with a beautiful light blue color, representing the scales along the hull of the boat ending with depictions of wind and waves on the heel leading up to its padded collar. White leather wraps around the bridge of the foot carrying across the laces complemented by red accents along the midsole, tongue tab, and wrapping around the “N” logo. No details on when or if these will hit retailers, but we’ve got some detailed looks at Zhijun’s amazing skill after the jump.
