When Will Issey Miyake × New Balance MT10O Sneaker Be Released?

Issey Miyake and New Balance are set to release their first collaboration, the Issey Miyake × New Balance MT10O, after its initial debut at the Issey Miyake spring/summer 2024 fashion show in Paris last October.

The project was the brainchild of Issey Miyake designer Satoshi Kondo, who was inspired by the idea of "sensuous physicality and barefoot mobility".

The collaboration is based on New Balance's MT10 trail running series, which is designed to provide the sensation of running barefoot while still offering protection and traction for off-road running.

The MT10O is part of New Balance's Minimus series, which emphasizes minimal cushioning and a close-to-ground experience. This model was first introduced in 2011 and was developed in response to the growing interest in closer to barefoot running experiences and technology, which was in line with the trend of minimalist running shoes at that time.


When it comes to the design of the collaborative MT10 sneaker, the insole features a co-branded logo that showcases the collaboration between the two brands. The upper combines lightweight, breathable mesh with supple premium leather, providing both comfort and durability. The thin cord-like shoelaces add to the sleek and minimalist design of the shoe. The vamp strap and foxing use abrasion-resistant rubber, which helps prevent wear and tear on the shoe over time. The outsole features protruding shapes that enhance traction on various terrains, utilizing rubber made by Vibram, a company known for its high-quality rubber soles.

Overall, the Issey Miyake × New Balance MT10O collaboration is a perfect marriage of style and functionality, catering to those who enjoy both fashion and fitness. The collaboration between the two brands is highly anticipated, and fans of both Issey Miyake and New Balance are eagerly awaiting the release of this unique and innovative sneaker. With its sleek design and functional features, the MT10O is sure to be a hit among runners and fashion enthusiasts alike.


The sneaker will be sold with a special shoe case and an original shoe box, making it the perfect addition to any collector's collection. But what sets this sneaker apart from the rest is its snug fit, specifically designed to prevent movement of the foot inside the shoe on uneven terrain. This makes it the perfect shoe for outdoor activities such as hiking or trail running.

In addition to its snug fit, the Issey Miyake × New Balance MT10O features the oblique shaped NL1 last, with a wide toe box, allowing for spreading and movement of the toes. This design feature ensures maximum comfort and flexibility for the wearer. The low drop design of 4mm also allows for a midfoot strike, making it the perfect shoe for those who prefer a more natural running style.
