Tennis Identity

Cool new collab. from New Balance and Mita. But do they glow in the dark?

Remember when tennis shoes were primarily white? That went out the window many years ago. Now you can wear them in just about any color imaginable.

And now…..they're fuzzy, too. As in a can of Wilson #3's-fuzzy.


The new tennis shoe is a joint venture between New Balance and Japanese sneaker line Mita, called the The Mita-New Balance MRT580 “Battle of Surfaces" shoe. Sneaker Report says the upper is indeed made of neon yellow felt, and you can buy 'em internationally, but not in the US yet, of course.  

The BIG question is, when will Milos Raonic start wearing them?




 10/7 – We hear that the Battle of the Surfaces tennis shoe will be available worldwide on 10/18 at select retailers.
