Onitsuka Tiger Sneakers
Founded in Kobe in 1949 by Kihachiro Onitsuka, Onitsuka Tiger now represents the forward-looking face of modern, metropolitan Japan. The entire collection of sports-inspired shoes, apparel and accessories reflects the innovative, original spirit of the brand. After continuous dialogues with top athletes, founder Kihachiro Onitsuka began manufacturing basketball shoes in the first place, but soon added a variety of Olympic styles used by athletes throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s. In the 60s Onitsuka invented the world-famous Tiger Stripes that gave their shoes a more unique and dynamic look. After being re-launched as a lifestyle brand in 2001, these days the company is synonymous with super-smart retro fashion with an authentic background.
