21 Feb Mita + New Balance
Japanese sneaker retailer, Mita has teamed up once again with American-based footwear manufacturer, New Balance for a limited edition version of the MR247 sneaker. Called the New Balance MR247 “Tokyo Rat,” the sneaker takes inspiration from a local species of rat that is said to never sleep — as a reference to the 24/7 functionality of the stylish silhouette.
The MR247 “Tokyo Rat” highlights a gray mesh toe with hairy suede paneling mimicking the fur of a rat, and accented with reflective detailing and muted orange accents. The sneaker is available to purchase with limited quantities through select sneaker boutiques in the United States for $130. Link
