NB580 “Panda” Custom by Zhijun Wang — Part 2 of “Animal Pack”

NB_Panda_ZJ_s

As the national emblem of China, Panda has always impressed the world with its furry and charmingly naive appearance. With this idea comes the new customization based on New Balance MT580, blending the panda features into the sneakers. Eyes, nose, ears and arms are made of black leather and the face of white, hand-sewed with black and white linen thread. The piece of panda add-on patch is attached to the back sole with Velcro tape. This customization is the second part of the “Animal Pack” and a brand new attempt into the traditional handcraft techniques as well.

Not for Sale.

作为中国特有的“国宝级”动物,猫熊黑白相间毛茸茸憨态可掬的可爱模样深受全世界的喜爱。这次定制的构思即源于此——基于经典的New Balance MT580鞋款,将猫熊与鞋本身融合在一起。分别用黑色的皮料裁切出猫熊的眼睛、鼻子、耳朵和臂膀部分,用白色的皮料裁切出猫熊的脸庞部分,而后以黑色和白色的麻线分别对应进行手工缝制。鞋后跟上白色面”PANDA”以及”ZJ DESIGN Logo”的白色魔术贴与猫熊皮质配件背面的黑色魔术贴使二者之间的连接更加紧密、牢固。这是此次的”动物系列”的第二个版本,在传统手工艺方面进行全新尝试。
