Working with top athletes to create premium performance gear
Since its inception, Onitsuka Tiger has worked closely with top athletes and sports teams to develop premium performance shoes. In 1953, Onitsuka Tiger worked with marathon runner Toru Terasawa to perfect a long-distance running shoe that would prevent blisters. The result? Impressive enough to win over celebrated marathon runner, Abebe Bikila, who was famous for his barefoot running style. Today, Onitsuka Tiger has created shoes for almost every sport imaginable, including football, martial arts, volleyball, cross-training, wrestling, golf and fencing. Available in a range of colours and styles, each pair features some iteration of the Onitsuka Tiger stripe design.
Mexico 66: The original ASICS stripe design
The famous ASICS Onitsuka Tiger stripe was first introduced during the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico, featured on a shoe known as the Mexico 66 which were worn by the national Japanese Olympic team. The Mexico 66 Onitsuka Tiger range were durable running shoes that today have evolved into Onitsuka Tiger’s most famous design; a popular and comfortable casual shoe, oozing with style and perfect for those who value comfort and fashion. Thanks to sturdy construction, durable rubber outsoles and cushioned footbeds, every pair of Onitsuka Tigers is designed to get you where you need to go without a hitch.
