adidas Consortium x Mita Sneakers

For their first collaboration since 2016, adidas Consortium and Japanese sneaker legends Mita join forces on two new footwear styles. Each shoe is inspired by the eye-catching interiors of the Mita store and its Tokyo surroundings. 
One of the most memorable collaborations from the 2016 adidas Consortium ‘World Tour’ saw the Tokyo-based retailers Mita breathing new life into a rugged 90s style, the SeeULater hiking shoe. Their latest team-up sees Mita applying their well-honed eye to one of the most enduringly iconic sneakers from the adidas stable, alongside anew take on a future-classic. This time, rather than looking to the great outdoors for inspiration, Mita and adidas Consortium have focused on the details and surrounding streets that have made the Mita store a must-visit destination for sneakerheads.
Both the NMD_R1 STLT x Mita & Stan Smith x Mita will launch on Friday the 13th of July ONLINE; 23:00BST

The NMD_R1 STLT is an evolved take on one of adidas’ most contemporary styles. Featuring primeknit uppers, BOOST soles and a pull tab lacing system/heel tab combination, the sneakers are perfectly suited to the hustle and bustle of contemporary Tokyo. The uppers also feature a tonal mesh pattern that calls to mind the wire cages famously used to display each footwear style sold within Mita.

Next up is the Mita take on the Stan Smith tennis shoe. Rendered here in premium leather uppers and a starkly contrasting sole. A host of blacked-out tonal additions, including heel tabs and metal side-zips, are offset by white text that runs downs the entire length of the tongue and across the heel. Geographic coordinates for both the Mita store in Tokyo and the adidas headquarters in Germany adorn each shoe. Together, they exemplify the Consortium mantra at the heart of this and many other collaborations: “The Respect is Mutual”.
