As far as Chinese New Year shoes go, this is exactly what you would expect from the NMD. Dressed in black boost and an all black primeknit upper, this shoe is extremely clean. It also comes with red three stripes on the side and a Chinese dragon mask embroidered into the heel. Red is also used on the Trefoil branding on the tongue.
