The ML581 is a new model from New Balance that’s designed to withstand the elements of trail running. Based of the ever-popular 574, the 581 features a suede, mesh and rubber construction with a rugged outsole for increased traction on the trail surface, along with a hidden shoelace system to help avoid your laces getting snagged on brush. As a long-time New Balance collaborator, Japanese retailer mita sneakers couldn’t wait to put its own spin on the new silhouette and was welcomed by the Boston-based footwear manufacturer to do just that. The shop decided to dress its version of the sneaker in neutral tones of beige, off-white and grey, matching it with a sticky gum outsole. A slight pinch of blue was worked in on the eyelets and tongue and heel branding to complete the look. Unfortunately, the shoes will never see a release in the States, but those of you overseas can find them now at select retailers including Slam Jam.
