UPDATE: These nappy suede clad beasts might have first dropped in October, but some retailers have been squirrelling them away and we vibe them so much we want you to have every opportunity possible to pick them up. The next store to show stock is Titolo, who have saved some exemplary pairs for their Swiss winter. Scurry over to their online store now to make them your own.
UPDATE: The squirrel, native to Japan's mita sneakers, has made its way across to Europe and is now set to be released into the wild via select stockists on December 3. You'll be able to snag the mita sneakers x ASICS GT-II from Footpatrol, Hanon, Wellgosh and END. but be quick, these critters can be hard to catch.
The folks over at mita have been on a hot streak recently. The Japanese retailer have worked with with Bape on an InstaPump Fury, adidas on a striking Seeulater and ASICS on a GT-Cool Xpress. Now, they’re linking again with the latter for this fury ode to everyone’s nut-loving creature.
Sometimes inspiration for colabs isn’t all that apparent, but mita have ensured that this GT-II’s squirrel inspired make-up is front and centre. Tonal brown plays out over a shaggy suede that abounds over the GT-II. A dark hazelnut brown covers the rear quarters, while a light chestnut colours the toe-box. The medial Tiger Stripes are then splashed with mita’s signature blue and red.
The mita x ASICS GT-II will be available from mita on October 15.
