Not only known for their great taste in sneakers, Japan's mita sneakers is not only a purveyor of some of the most coveted and rare kicks, but also one of the sportswear label's favorite collaborators. With a deep passion for kicks and incomparable insight, mita sneakers has worked with everyone from Reebok to Nike and New Balance, and this season, for Fall/Winter 2010, they have teamed up with ASICS to put the mita touch on the latter's classic Gel Lyte III. Named "Far East Tokyo Ueno" (With Ueno paying tribute to where mita sneakers is located-- and you thought it would be somewhere in the hip Harajuku, didn't you?), the new collaborative sneakers feature a lux all-black upper combining the opulent qualities of supple leather and shiny nylon. Not too impressed with black? The wild side resides on the insoles in a leopard print. via: HS
