Bringing a trainer back from the archive is a bit like remastering an album. You take what went before and apply contemporary technology and techniques to enhance what was already great, and hopefully introduce the work to a new generation. Mizuno have dipped into their extensive back catalogue to bring out a new iteration of classic 90s runner, the Sky Medal S. This silhouette is the Japanese brand’s Revolver, Dark Side of the Moon, or Morning Glory – i.e. the one that everybody likes.
In keeping with the modus operandi of Mizuno’s Sportstyle collection, the Sky Medal S finds that sweet spot between tradition and innovation. The shoe balances straightforward shapes and bold choices when it comes to materials, sporting a premium suede and open mesh upper in a range of pleasing monochromatic colourways: dove grey, charcoal, and mustard yellow.
These mono Mizunos offer you the choice of being bold or understated depending on which hue’s you. We took the dove grey and mustard yellow options for a mooch around Manchester, from the concrete canalside neighbourhood of New Islington, to the vibrant street art adorned walls of the Northern Quarter. You can see how we got on below and pick up a pair for yourself from emea.mizuno.com and selected retailers.
