To be release Friday, April 20th, limited to 33 stores around the world, will be the 2nd edition of the Super Team 33 Series.
Based on M1400, the 2nd edition will feature the blend of Tokyo, where all genres of fashion mix and crossover, by melting patterns and materials. The concept was directed by http://mita-sneakers.co.jp/html/superteam33_vol2.html” target=”_blank”>mita Sneakers, incorporated visually onto the sneaker themselves.
http://newbalance.com/home.php” target=”_blank”>New Balance also brought back the usage of the “eye-like” graphic on the rear of the sneaker. The graphic are made from actual stingray skin. In fact, stingray skin used on is the rear cartilage portion, a highly prized part. The eye shaped graphic,which occurred naturally, forged the mythology of “Eye of God”. This led many cultures around the Indian and Pacific Oceans to anointed the stingray as the Guardian of the Sea. Products provided by our friends at mita Sneakers, photos by AKI
