In 1996, Shigeyuki Kunii of mita sneakers arranged for a collaboration with HECTIC on the unheralded New Balance 580. Now that the silhouette is celebrating its 20th anniversary, New Balance joins up once again with Kunii, and for old time's sake, HECTIC co-founders Naotake Magara and Yoshifumi Egawa. The usual suspects have come together to update the 580 in "MRT" form, complete with a REVlite-infused midsole and a deep navy blue base. Look for the kicks to launch soon at mita sneakers.
