Among the many classics out of the New Balance arsenal, Japanese street style purveyor and pioneer Hiroaki Shitano of Whiz Limited and Shigeyuki Kunii of mita have chosen the futuristically modified MS 574 V2, dosing in punchy colors in a subversion of typical military themes for a kit dubbed “For The Night.” Along its breathable mesh uppers and durable suede/nubuck mixtures is a canvas of expressive tonality, featuring bright hits of red and blue throughout with a cyber-akin grid pattern adorning the midsole’s aggressive construction. Outsole hits, unders, and overlays — though with their use of bolder swathes — mostly comprise of a dark black shade, contrasting against the colorful backdrop in tandem with the white molds and reflective components. Speciality insoles complete the necessary cobranded plays, matching the bright palette showcased throughout. Grab a detailed look at pair in its full glory below and expect this three way collaboration to become available April 13th.
