The classic Mizuno Wave Rider has enjoyed a strong resurgence in popularity this year. Its striking silhouette and heavy dose of retro detailing fit in perfectly with current industry trends, and limited collaborations have helped its desirability rise as well. The next partner to take a collaborative crack at the classic runner? Spain/Thailand’s 24 Kilates. Inspired by the regal and highly dangerous king cobra, the shoes combine traditional athletic colors — navy, red, and gold — with faux snakeskin and luxe suede on the upper for a striking look that’s simultaneously fast and fancy. A large king cobra patch appears on the tongue, further special branding adorns the heel tab, and the classic white/gold midsole is left intact for a simple nod to the shoe’s runner roots. These reptilian runners will release at 24k stores on October 27th before rolling out to other Mizuno stockists on December 8th, so enjoy a thorough look below and check out a Where To Buy list to see where you can secure a pair.
