La MJC and Mizuno Revive the Mondo Control
Featuring two monochromatic colourways, ‘Carte Blanche’ and ‘Or Noir’, in timeless suede and mesh construction, the chic French touch can be plainly seen.
In typical La MJC style, each colour is limited to 75 pairs and individually numbered. The release is only available in-store at Paris flagship Club 75 on June 22. This coincides with the fourth anniversary of the location’s opening.

Between 1993 and 1996, the “Mondo” series were the top running collection from Japanese brand Mizuno. Born in 1994, amongst the series, the Mondo Control model made History and was characterized by its very particular stabilizer going through all the shoe until the forefoot. This iconic stabilizer inspired a few years after the legendary “Wave” technology, introduced in 1997 with the Wave Rider model….A shoe I was honored to work on last year, as my first project with Mizuno. Today, I’m even more honored to be the first one globally to be able to work on the Mondo Control. I wanted to re-introduced the magic silhouette to the world without touching it too much, as its design is so strong and pure already. Keeping things chic and classic I opted for a full white and full black duo, with premium materials, mesh, suede, leather and a subtle touch of 3M. Going to crazy on this one was unnecessary, as my first idea was to make sure you will remember the model, and enjoying it as we were still in 1994. La MJC for Mizuno Mondo Control “Carte Blanche” and “Or Noir” models will both release at the occasion of Club 75 flagship 4th anniversary, on June 22nd, exclusively in Paris. Both pairs are numbered and (obviously) limited to….75 pairs each! You are welcome to get yours at the store from 11.30 in the morning and then party with the crew from 4pm til early evening. Music, drinks, birthday cakes on us! #lamjc #mizuno #mondocontrol
You’d better book flights to Paris ASAP, or stare wistfully at them from your screen as you read this.
