In crafting an upcoming sneaker collaboration with Onitsuka Tiger, mita sneakers looked to a pair of famous residents at neighboring Ueno Zoo in Tokyo for design inspiration. The result is the vintage high-top Fabre basketball shoe featuring an upper finished in acrylic black and white fur, paying homage to 7-year-old giant pandas Ri Ri and Shin Shin. Additional details on the shoe include suede overlays throughout the upper for a premium look, while mita sneakers branding takes the form of printed logos on the lace tips and signature chain link graphic printed on the sockliner. Look for the kicks to launch at mita sneakers and select Onitsuka Tiger retailers starting April 27th.
