There is so much to say about these Mizuno x Hanon collaboration sneakers. I swear the first words that came to mind when I had them in my hands was that last Wu Tang joint at the end of their first album, when it says “I mean it’s like, it’s music that you gotta touch and feel / you know what I’m sayin’“.
This translated for this occasion means: no matter how many words I may say, you will understand this style to the fullest only when you wear it.
Mizuno is the footwear brand that will make its priority to give you the best quality on sneakers, while Hanon is a blazoned sneakers shop holding it down for the Old Continent.
Based in Aberdeen, Ireland, this brick and mortar unit is a reference for what concerns specialty sneakers and limited edition apparel.
As we can see the hard work always pays off, considering that the Japanese brand agreed with Hanon to create a collaborative Mizuno x Hanon style. The choice fell on Sky Medal that in this case earned the nickname of “The Angel Share”.
By this expression, Irish distilleries mean the percentage of alcohol that evaporates from a cask into the air as the whisky ages over time. It’s easy to understand that the Japanese sportswear brand wanted to exploit to the maximum the scenario of the retailer that kept references on this pair completely local. Getting inspired by Glenfarclas Distillery has been the key behind its sharp colorway.
Going back to the opening paragraph, now that you have the situation clear: until you slip your feet inside you will never understand how smooth this pigskin nubuk is and how comfortable is the combined action of inner bootie and Transtab cushioning system. The latter, placed inside an EVA midsole, pampers your feet with a superior level of comfort.
No matter if you love this style for its multilayered structure that includes corduroy accents that catch you by surprise or because of its leather laminated insole: this limited edition really went the extra mile to propose you something special. Peep Mizuno website and fall in love with all the retro fresh silhouettes of this brand.
