Japanese compatriots BEAMS and mita sneakers are no strangers and have joined forces before, coming together in 2016 for a souvenir jacket-inspired GEL-Lyte III collaboration with ASICS – a colab that's gone down as one of the best-ever GEL-Lyte IIIs.
This time around, they've brought another collaborative partner into the mix: New Balance. The limited-edition MT580 drop goes the stealthy route and comes clad in grey with nubuck and ripstop nylon construction. The execution isn't entirely under the radar, though, and employs reflective accents throughout, not to mention removable lace-protecting shrouds to switch up the look.
Unfortunately the colab is already sold out via mita, but expect a wider release at additional NB retailers soon.
