Mizuno and Highsnobiety have teamed up to rework one of the brand’s most timeless silhouettes, the Wave Rider 1. Originally released in 1998, the classic sneaker is reborn as the Wave Rider Phoenix in military nylon mesh, nubuck, suede, and full grain leather.
The iconic Runbird logo, pull tab, mesh, and Wave plate appear in a bold red while other elements feature in various shades of gray. A soft, pastel blue is used sparingly on the underside of the tongue, outsole, and Runbird logo on the toe box.
In reference to the shoe’s running history, the upper features a reflective lace keeper and piping, and Highsnobiety branding appears on the tongue, insole, heel counter, and pull tab. All of this sits atop a white EVA midsole.
The Mizuno Wave Rider Phoenix x Highsnobiety will launch on Saturday 12th of May ONLINE; 00:00BST.
