Japanese retailer mita Sneakers are next up to collaborate with Brooks on the ‘90s classic Beast 1 running shoe. Simply dubbed “Enchanted” the shoe is inspired by fairytale monsters and sports an upper of silky brown pigskin suede.
The limited-edition mita sneakers x Brooks Heritage “Enchantment” Beast 1 evokes classic imagery of fairy tale monsters with its fur-coloured brown pigskin suede in the upper and its rope laces; tonal variations accentuate the shoe’s weight and form while contrasting pops of colour in the heel and sole tell a modern-day story. The shoe maintains its original running technologies such as a moulded TPU heel counter and logo, air mesh vamp and quarter, pebbled leather detailing and a compression moulded EVA midsole.
Further showcasing the monster within, the “Enchantment” Beast 1’s sock liner features images of thorns and fencing as well as the Brooks Heritage and mita sneakers monograms and a “Tokyo Custom Made” logo. Taking the inspiration to the next level, the “Enchantment” Beast 1 will come in a fur-printed shoe box.
LAUNCH: SATURDAY 31ST OCTOBER 00:01GMT
