Two companies, not assiciated with tennis, have collaborated on a model not used for tennis, and utilized tennis as the theme. While it may be an unexpected project, that's the scenario when it comes to this upcoming launch from mita and New Balance, which drops tomorrow at select retailers. At least you can't say you saw the "Battle of the Surfaces" MRT580 coming. 

The execution of this collaboration follows in the tradition of past models to utilize a full tennis ball material upper, like Nike's equally illogical NFW Hypermax, as well as Reebok's original use on their Court Victory collaboration with Alife. Check out the video and a closer look below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments on this new collaboration.
