Editor’s Notes: Patta and Mizuno have teamed up on the special edition Sky Medal, a classic running shoe featuring the Japanese brand’s iconic Runbird design on the sides.
The colors Patta incorporated were inspired by the original Sunbird design, a decision that was made in order to respect the deep history and aesthetic of Mizuno’s product line.
The sneaker releases at both Patta’s stores in Amsterdam and London, as well as the retailer’s online store on August 11.
Mizuno has been on a tear so far this year, having already collaborated with some of streetwear’s biggest names. Highsnobiety and Mizuno dropped a collaborative “Phoenix” Wave Rider back in May, which you can check out here.
