Japan’s mita sneakers have tried their hand at New Balance’s 574S and crushed it. In fact, they’ve made what could be the nicest version of the sneaker we've seen yet. Passing on detachable logos or saturated palettes, mita’s colab wins for its considered, no-fuss approach and clean materials.
Darker notes at the rear balance the pull tabs' pops of teal, while an oceanic blue rolls over the toe box. A small ‘NB’ logo sits on the lateral toe, and a lightened gum sole underpins the look. It's a simple design, but one that proves you don’t have to hinge your inspiration on gimmickry to make a good sneaker — the simplest idea is often the best.
