Japan’s mita is known as a hotspot for sneakers, so it’s fitting that their new Reebok colab draws from the world’s most heated places. Awash with a ‘Desert Sand Bath’ colourway that sees the Ultra Knit kitted out in sandy tones, this Zoku Runner also has thematic imagery that reinforces its inspiration. The insoles are home to a couple of desert-dwelling creatures, with a camel imprint on the left and a scorpion on the right – both overlaid on mita’s chain-link motif. Underfoot, the DMX Foam sits serenely, while a unique lacing system hangs over the top – ready to strike.
The Desert Sand Bath mita x Reebok Zoku Runner will be available on May 27 from mita online.
