French adjectives

I've been studying French for a while now and have just finished a chapter on adjectives. However, my book does not say clearly where the adjective nouveau should be placed. One of the examples it gives is: Mes nouvelles chaussures sont trop petites. But the following paragraph does not mention it as one of the adjectives that should be placed before a noun.
So, could somebody please explain to me why nouvelles is placed before the noun in the example? Is there a special rule I haven't heard of yet?
