You finally have a way to fit in with your brown shoe buddies without really stepping out of the sneaker realm thanks to the INVINCIBLE x New Balance 1400 “Brogue” shown here. The collab takes that top of the line New Balance silo that’s been most present in the J.Crew collection these days and throws in plenty of perforations along the lines of the upper to give it that dressy look. Throw in some rounded laces and what looks to be a leather lining and you’ve got one of the dressiest looking New Balance releases we’ve ever laid eyes on. See more of the INVINCIBLE x New Balance 1400 “Brogue” after the jump and watch for them to hit stores in June 2013.

New Balance is known as one of the leaders when it comes to collaborating with Japanese brands and issuing Asia-exclusive limited editions. This newest pack commemorates the Chinese tradition of celebrating the Lunar New Year, but interestingly enough, only one of the five guest designers is from China. The New Balance 574 ’Dragon Pack’ reminds us that not only are the zodiac animals on a 12-year cycle, but that they also rotate across the five ‘elements’. Japan’s mita sneakers and Whiz come through with the wood and fire looks, respectively, Taiwan’s Invincible goes for earth, Singapore’s Limited Edt handles the water, and China’s NPC completes the set with an iron-inspired colorway. Each pair carries enough details to make their photos worth far more words than we can fit here, so click through to see more angles and stick with Sneaker News for word on possible US availability. via Streething
