Onitsuka Tiger silhouettes offer the ideal canvas for collaborators to reimagine and produce kicks sneakerheads seek. The label’s classic kicks have once again been used as the medium for a pair of collaborations, this time courtesy of progressive fashion imprint Publish Brand.
For spring ’16, Publish Brand will deliver two reimagined iterations of Onitsuka Tiger’s Colorado Eighty-Five MT Samsara silhouette. The collaborations are scheduled to hit stores in late April.
“We are so privileged to work with such an iconic brand,” said Alex James, director of Publish Brand, in a statement issued today. “For this collaboration, we wanted to tap into the rich history of the Onitsuka Tiger brand and give one of their classic runners a modern update. The end result is a hybrid runner chukka designed for the urban explorer.”
Publish Brand and Onitsuka Tiger released a teaser image of one of the shoes today, but has kept the project largely under wraps.
“Publish Brand pushes the boundaries of design with its aspirational interpretations of classic styles,” said Cory Long, lifestyle senior brand manager for Asics. “Together we have created something special for consumers and look forward to releasing the collaboration this spring.”
