New Balance has called in Mita Sneakers and STUDIO SEVEN for a collaborative three-way iteration of the ML850. Following its camping-inspired co-sign with atmos from earlier this month, the classic silhouette has been given a vibrant pastel-clad makeover, alongside a set of graphic T-shirts and extra shoelaces.
Coming in bright retro tones of teal, purple, light lavender, gray, white and black, the sneakers come with an array of finely textured materials that complement the silhouette's robust design. "New Balance" and "850" branding is stamped at the top of the tongue, followed by smooth round laces and a lush suede-tinged eyelet panel. A crisp ivory shade appears over a large portion of the sidewalls, contrasted against the breathable gray mesh uppers. Matching the toecap, the shoe's heel counter comes in black nubuck, etched with rich "NB" branding on the lateral side and a quirky image of a macaron embroidered at the medial half.
All of these details rest over a chunky white midsole, packed with ABZORB technology for optimal cushioning and support. The same macaron motif appears on the right sleeve of white T-shirts marked with "STUDIO SEVEN" box logos — included in the same capsule is a set of blue, white and purple laces, also featuring "STUDIO SEVEN" branding.
The Mita Sneakers x STUDIO SEVEN x New Balance ML850 is slated to release on April 28, 11 p.m. EDT on Mita Sneakers' website for $137 USD, alongside extra laces and T-shirts, ranging from $14 – $93 USD.
