Publish Brand announced last week that a pair of collaborations with Onitsuka Tiger was on the way. Today, the progressive fashion label unveiled images of the shoes, shot by the photography collective Team Cozy.
The two colorways of the Publish Brand x Onitsuka Tiger Colorado Eighty-Five MT Samsara arrive on Saturday and will retail for $120. The shoes will be sold via the Publish Brand website, publishbrand.com, as well as select boutique retailers.
Today’s traveling photographer inspired the collaboration, according to Publish Brand, and was created in an effort to make the ideal shoe for the creative nomad. The Publish Brand iterations of the shoe, a deconstructed heritage trail running silhouette, feature earth tones that represent daylight and nightfall, and boast perforated detailing, tonal rope laces and subtle co-branding. The shoe was updated with a higher heel height, a rugged outsole and suede uppers.
The brands enlisted the services of Team Cozy for a shoot of the collaboration in cultural epicenters of the world including Tokyo, San Francisco, Sydney and Toronto. The purpose of the shoot, according to Publish Brand, was to capture the wanderlust and creativity that fueled the collaboration.
