New Balance Japan Whiz x Mita P580 / New Whiz ‘Border’ collection
Mita Sneakers have teamed up with NB Japan and Japanese label Whiz for these new P580s that have just dropped to coincide with the unveiling of Whiz’s new ‘Border’ A/W collection. They feature a snake skin ‘N’ plus plenty of tartan trim, which is something of a Whiz signature.
If your Japanese is up to it check the Mita website for a round table discussion on the development of the shoe. Also check the Whiz site which has just been updated with their new range. The distinctive Whiz arm-length lightning bolts have had their day, being replaced by more mature and subtle branding. But it’s anything but drab, with vivid color still a key part of their mix.
Not particularly my style but I support New Balance even when they come out with the odd shit...
