The MT580 has always been Big in Japan, where its premium price tag and colabs with the likes of Mita, Hectic and Stussy gave it undeniable cachet. Thanks to an injection of New Balance’s Revlite foam, the MT580 is suddenly lighter and brighter than ever before. Forged by a friendship based on mutual respect, NB Japan tapped Tokyo’s Mita Sneakers and Singaporean artist SBTG to produce this Tiger Stripe MT580. Recognised as the world’s premier sneaker customiser, SBTG’s signature camo brushwork is in full effect here, complemented by custom insoles and illustrated tongue tags that feature wire cutters, emblematic of Mita Sneakers’ trademark cyclone fencing. The Mita Sneakers x SBTG x New Balance MRT580 will release on January 2nd in both Japan and Singapore, followed by a worldwide release on January 16th at retailers, including Hanon.
