Mizuno has slowly elevated their footwear offerings, bringing back retro styles while also bolstering their cushioning technology. The Japanese brand has slowly gained fanfare, with their ERNERZY sneaker being hailed as one of the most comfortable releases of 2020. Digging into their retro styling bag, the Contender has returned ready to hit the asphalt.
The Mizuno Contender captures the essence of Mizuno: simplicity infused with Japanese style. Here, cream leather overlays sit atop a grey mesh foundation. Alongside those two tones, white laces bring the silhouette full circle, mirroring the same clean color of the sole. Displayed on the heel and mid-panel, Mizuno branding is seen. Underfoot, black soles complete the design.
For Mizuno Contender loves, the Mizuno Contender “Bleached Sand” is available for release through retailers like SNS for $110. If you enjoy retro styled sneakers, this pair will be for you. Make sure to take a look at official photos below and then click the link above to cop a pair for yourself.
