As the Lunar New Year approaches in just under two weeks, it’s time to have your new ensembles ready to ring in the new year with a clean slate and to usher in good fortune.
But don’t forget about the shoes. Once the festivities roll around, it’s customary to avoid buying shoes until the 16th day of spring, as the Cantonese word for shoes sounds like a sign, which is associated with bad luck. If you find yourself in need of the perfect shoes to complete your spring wardrobe, now it’s time to head to Harbour City, where you can discover these Chinese New Year-inspired footwear in time.
