Tokyo’s SAYHELLO gears up for a debut sneaker collaboration, partnering with fellow Japanese imprint Mizuno for a duo of revamped Court Select models. Delivered in both cool-hued and earth-toned colorways, the versatile tennis silhouette sports pops of color, premium detailing and embossed branding.
Crafted from suede and nubuck, with lush pig leather lining, the sneakers are realized in blue/grey and beige/green colorways that coincide neatly with the warming weather. Gum soles and hits of orange offer warm accents that complement the muted makeups, with tonal shoelaces and light broguing at the toe for slight visual interest. SAYHELLO branding is embossed towards the heel, with the majority of the 25 year-old silhouette’s detailing kept intact.
Select Japanese retailers will host the collaborative sneaker’s drop on March 21 for ¥16,000 JPY ($145 USD), notably at a special SAYHELLO pop-up at WISM.
Most recently, Mizuno relaunched its high-tech Wave Creation WAVEKNIT runner.
