After a tripartite NB 247 Luxe Pack debuted at the beginning of January, the recently introduced New Balance 247 gets a tonal and hairy ‘Tokyo Rat’ execution by mita sneakers.
Inspired by the rats that run the streets of Tokyo at all hours and designed by mita’s Shigeyuki Kunii, this 247 utilizes hairy suede and perforated mesh uppers to echo its theme. Accented by white and grey, it sits atop orange REVlite tooling.
mita sneakers even brought in multidisciplinary award-winning designer Keita Suzuki to bless the insole with a unique graphic. This collab will be exclusive to Japan’s mita sneakers, so call up your plug, because it drops on January 28.
