beautiful people and Mizuno Drop a Skeletal Hybrid Sneaker
Release: 15 January 2022

Founded by Comme des Garçons alum Hidenori Kumakiri​, beautiful people are known for crafting garments that are simple, elegant and functional. After linking up with Mizuno for sneakers and a backpack in March of 2021, Kumakiri's brand is back yet again with another hybrid sneaker that combines elements from two different Mizuno designs for a skeletal look.

beautiful people's Mizuno shoe is without an official name, but it combines the upper of the stripped-back CHRONO INX 9 track and field spike with the full-foot INFINITY WAVE midsole that's used on models like the WAVE PROPHECY. Due to the cut and cored construction of both its top and bottom half, it offers a see-through look that can be paired with almost any type of coloured sock!

Besides the unique construction, the stripped-back sneaker also features co-branded detailing on its laces, a Velcro strap at the top of the tongue for enhanced lockdown and a heel tab for ease of entry and removal. Its all-white colourway is a follow-up to the above-mentioned first colab from 2021, which featured a two-tone black and white makeup.

The latest beautiful people x Mizuno colab is available now via Mizuno's Japanese web store and retailers like mita sneakers. Its MSRP is set at a tax-included ¥37,400, which translates to roughly $328.
