Based on my first trip to Japan 22 years ago. It was a school exchange program where we visited Miyazaki in Fukuoka.

I experienced many things for the first time, like cold soba , dipping bbq beef in raw eggs and Japanese way of hospitality .

More importantly, my school mate (Sherman Ko) generously bought me my first pair of Puma Clydes because I was too broke.

I found out later, that It was a rare version with a 'Contact' sole. I went home a proud owner of the Clydes and everyone very envious of it.
I decided to title this collection ' First Contact ' celebrating first time experiences and friendship. A first time collab with Puma and a continued one with Mita.

This design was based out of a pair of Custom painted pair that caught the eye of Mita Sneakers Creative Director, Shigeyui Kunii.
He contacted me with a pic of the shoes saying that we should make this a production model and the rest is history.

This pair features Sbtg's signature Tiger Camo, a frequently painted pattern and practice for the past 12 years. There are 2 colorways chosen by both Sbtg and Shige from Mita Sneakers. As with all SBTG x Mita Sneakers, there is a featured Sbtg Artwork on the insoles with Mita's signature chain link fence fused into it.
