One of New Balance’s recent projects with mita Sneakers (and Hectic) resulted in a pair of blue 580’s. Now another Japanese brand in Oshman’s joins mita Sneakers and New Balance to produce two sneakers- a pair of CM1001’s and 1500’s. The CM1001 sports a predominantly grey suede upper with dark grey mesh on the toe box. The CM1500 comes in an even lighter grey suede upper with white on the toe box and blue and yellow accents near the ankle area. The CM1001 is actually nicknamed the “History Gradation” and is expected to release in December of this year for somewhere around $150. The CM1500 is also known as the “Authentic Combination,” and it is expected to retail closer to $200 when it drops in January of next year. If more pertinent release information comes up, we’ll keep you updated. But expect these to be easier to get a hold of through Japanese retailers than in stateside New Balance retailers.
