Mihara Yasuhiro is one of the most important footwear designers that you've probably never heard of. Since his eponymous label launched in ’97, Yasuhiro has collaborated with everyone from PUMA to Moncler, yet he remains an under-the-radar name in fashion.

The latest Maison Miharayasuhiro drop is built from a number of footwear cult classics that have been given new lease life for the upcoming season. Using iconic silhouettes as the foundation, he molds a new, unmistakable sole unit to render the styles his own, making the familiar silhouettes seem almost otherworldly. The sole unit has become such a signature that it's become a fixture of standout customizations, too.

The Air Force 1 is no doubt one of the essential sneakers in the modern rotation. Mihara Yasuhiro gives the staple silhouette an eye-catching twist with new ripped-out canvas uppers for the new season, which couple with the clay-like sole.

One of Miharayasuhiro's staple silhouettes is the Hank. This low-top design is a familiar favorite that's taken out of context with signature clay-look sole units. Thanks to the minimal uppers, it's the perfect shoe for some wild finishes like the textured suede or grid canvas editions above.

That shell toe feels familiar. Where you'd usually find silver-foil adidas markings, here you'll find MMY embroidery with the silhouette's Blakey denomination below. This season welcomes a washed-out, faded finish to the canvas uppers.

Coming in both high-top and low-top form this season, the Miharayasuhiro Peterson Sneakers are arguably the most understated of the MMY offering. Filled out with premium materials like the beautiful murky green suede above, this silhouette exemplifies the designer's penchant for subtle upgrades.

Miharayasuhiro's collection is so unapologetically bold that the minimal General Scale Sneakers become the odd one out. Gone are the chunky clay-look sole unit, thick laces, and unorthodox uppers. All that stands in their place is a pair of simple, old-fashioned canvas keds.
