Gong Xi Fa Cai—or, in English, “Happy Chinese New Year!”  Did your Western New Year fizzle instead of sizzle when the ball dropped on January 1st?  Did “Auld Lang Syne” make you want to regurgitate all the champagne you binge drank?  Guess what?  You can have a second chance!  2015 is the year of the Wood Sheep—a tremendous year for growth, especially for artistic endeavors.  Step into the Chinese Lunar New Year renewed on February 19th  channeling the symbols of the Wood Sheep, whose fortuitous shade is green—shoes in verdant shades reminiscent of a forest with aesthetic appeal, statement pieces that whisper, not shout. 

When you think of Converse, you usually don’t think of the pastoral landscaped habited by the soft, gentle, mewing Wood Sheep.  Even if the only thing flourishing around you is noise pollution and urban sprawl, you can still pay homage to the rustic sheep year by grabbing some Chuck Taylor Fresh Colors sneakers in Jungle Green.  With promocodesforyou.com, you can get $5.95 flat rate shipping.  Baaaah-baaah—baller!
