Arriving as a departure from the lifestyle, sportswear, and outdoor footwear silhouettes currently prevalent on the market, Mizuno introduces a new low-top “Bareclutch” sneaker made for a direct pedal feel when driving and comfortable city walking. Jointly developed with Japanese automaker Mazda, the offering features a thin Mizuno COB sole which provides efficient cushioning as well as a more direct feeling on the pedal.

Rounded soles allow for better heel rotation and a bigger contact area between the sole and floor surface while treaded bottoms offer improved grip. Found in a clean monochrome build with soft artificial leather uppers, the pairs can be worn for various occasions.

The Mizuno “Bareclutch” shoes will be available in “White,” “Black,” and “Blue” September 20 on Mizuno’s website and at select retailers.

Elsewhere in footwear, Nike’s Latest Air Max 97 celebrates the Father of Air technology.
