Noriaki Endo‘s ’90s streetwear label Devilock has been enlisted by its fellow Japanese brand Maison Mihara Yasuhiro for a collaboration that sees the latter’s PETERSON sneaker get reworked in two blacked-out renditions.
Devilock is known for producing garments that expand on the crossover between rock music and fashion — the brand does take its name from the American punk band The Misfits, after all. This sensibility has been applied to its Maison Mihara Yasuhiro collaboration, delivering two PETERSON models in a fittingly punk-like aesthetic.
It does this by combing premium black leather with distressed details alongside Maison Mihara Yasuhiro’s signature OG sole unit that looks like melted rubber. The first pair is black-on-black, sporting thick laces, chunky seams, and a rubber toe cap. Additionally, the duo presents a PETERSON with a similar black make-up, however, this time it also comes with white topstitching and Devilock branding on the tongue and toe cap.
This topstitched pair taps into Devilocks’ punk roots, as the distressing and overall design is much more in tune with its rock aesthetic. The same gum waffle outsole, rubber OG sole unit, and fat laces are seen on this pair.
Devilocks’ Maison Mihara Yasuhiro PETERSON collaboration is set to drop on November 21 on the Devilock and Maison Mihara Yasuhiro websites, with the sneakers costing ¥38,000 JPY each (approx. $365 USD).
