5 years ago, I had given an opportunity to design a New Balance sneaker along with mita Sneaker. They put the popular style MT580 on the table at first, but I didn’t want to do the same as what other companies had done with their collaborations, so I chose CM820 instead. Somehow, CM820 series is not so popular in New Balance, however, if you search “New balance CM820” in Google, our collaboration pops out at first.
This picture below was never released. Only 2 pairs were made for this collaboration matter.
Thank goes out to mita sneaker, New Balance, Tongari and Hikita for this opportunity.
