mita sneakers x New Balance   MT576V Raijin 雷神

As we reported last month of atmos x New Balance limited edition sneaker CM576 Fujin “風神” (God of Wind), here is the long awaited version by mita Sneakers. Within the same collection and based on 576 model, the MT576V Raijin “雷神” (Thunder God) was released on November 3rd.

The sneaker featured special materials that both glow and reflect light. A characteristic which gave the sneaker 2 different appearances in the daytime and night. The MT576V is also considered as hybrid model. It utilized the sole of MT580 better stability and comfort.
In the Japanese mythology, Raijin is the God of Thunder & Lighting, a deity long associated with Fujin “風神”, or God of Wind. The 2 figures are commonly found on ancient paintings and scrolls, including several designated as Japan’s national treasures. Item provided by mita Sneakers, Photos by Aki.
