Founded in 2000, WHIZ aimed to share local Japanese fashion culture with a worldwide audience. This attitude led to WHIZ becoming one of Japan’s finest fashion brands. And MITA, the shop that distributes WHIZ, is one of Japan’s most reputable retailers.
Commemorating WHIZ's latest anniversary, the WHIZ x MITA x Puma XT2 sees the brand’s iconic runner inspired by "Odelay", Beck's 2nd album released in '96, coinciding with WHIZ’s Spring/Summer apparel collection which also draws inspiration from the album.
The shoe’s design is a sensitively handled reissue of the original XT2 as it receives a vivid sky blue color along the Formstrip which contrasts the deep reds and blues that make up the upper very interesting. Further, the rich suede overlays give the product a premium feel and midsole accents offer a nod to the shoe’s performance heritage.
Produced in cry limited quantities, this drop launches tomorrow — Saturday, August 23rd — when our doors open at 11AM EST. Remaining pairs will be available online as of 12 Noon EST.
