New Balance continues its ongoing partnerships with both Oshman’s Japanese branch and mita sneakers, this time shouting out a trendy Cuban cocktail whose colorway is right at home on NB’s most famous silhouette. The Oshman’s x mita sneakers x New Balance ML574 ‘Mojito’ is based on the mix of rum plus muddled lime and mint, which results in a soft green and charcoal gum-soled design that’s every bit as refreshing as its namesake poured over ice. And being that all of these colors are quite neutral, these manage to stay within the New Bal wheelhouse while simultaneously embracing colors that’ve been so hot both individually and together in recent years. December 8th marks the second Saturday of the month and this pair’s release, so have a closer look below and let us know where these rank in the steadily growing cellar of spirit-filled sneakers.
