On February 1st the Year Of The Tiger began and New Balance come into the game strong with the XC-72 Lunar New Year.

This past weekend we caught up with our own photographer Yuhan Yang as he made his way to DC's Chinatown. Pictured in the New Balance XC-72 Lunar New Year, Yuhan embodied the feeling and style celebrating the Year Of The Tiger.

New Balance's newest model the XC-72 gives you the inspiration of the timeless 1970's concept cars, like the Chrysler Cordoba de Oro or the Ford Prima. Three distinctive and special outsole patterns and angled features give you the perfect low cut shoe with an emphasis on edge. 

The XC-72 Lunar New Year helps to usher in the Year of the Tiger with a mix of neutral earth tones and tiger stripe graphics. A split-color, nylon and mesh upper is overlaid with hairy suede, with subtly placed but colorful tiger stripe detailing at the toe and heel.
