Once a regional exclusive to Japan and the focus of numerous collaborations between Stussy and mad hectic, the fabled trail running MT580 recently saw its first action in the world spotlight with more general releases. A preview of the 2009 collection of clunky midsoled runner features some picture perfect colorways which offer a great compromise with the often colorful offerings most MT580 fans are subjected to with the Stussy x mad hectic collabos. No word yet on availability.
