Onitsuka Tiger Unveils 2019 Fall & Winter Collection

22.April.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

Onitsuka Tiger is a Japanese shoe company that boasts worldwide popularity and recognition. The company has just unveiled its 2019 fall and winter collection, so let’s take a look!

The theme of the collection is “Downtown Rave.” It was inspired by Berlin’s club scene―German’s capital and a leader of fashion in Europe―and the free thinking mentality of the 90’s.

1183A421.002 Color: BLACK/GLACIER GREY


1183A420.001 Color: BLACK/VIBRANT YELLOW


Releasing: July 2019

These shoes are a call back to the 90’s with their chunky soles and 90’s retro style. The shoe uppers feature Blucher-style open lacing with only suede tape sewn onto them.

1183A422.100 Color: WHITE/VIBRANT YELLOW


Releasing: July 2019

The CHUNKY SLIP-ON’s make use of Onitsuka Tiger’s “APPIAN” uppers but rearrange them to create a new model with the cover concealed from the top. Though they are slip-on style shoes, it’s possible to fit them with either the Velcro belts or drawcords making them easy to wear. These also feature chunky soles.

1183A418.750 Color: TIGER YELLOW/BLACK


Releasing: July 2019

The entire upper of these shoes is made in a minimalist style with the brand’s logo on them. They may look heavy but they are extremely light!


1183A419.001 Color: BLACK/BLACK


Releasing: August 2019

The BIG LOGO’s are based off the design of trail running shoes. These too are very light as well as comfortable on the feet. The side of the uppers features the brand’s logo.

1183A396.020 Color: MID GREY/MID GREY


Releasing: July 2019

These trainers are based on the adidas DNA’s but have been modernised. The slit in the mid-sole makes them look much more stylish and the cushion hole at the front makes them even more comfortable to wear.

1182A127.101 Color: WHITE/WHITE

1182A127.100 Color: CREAM/CREAM


Releasing: July 2019 / September 2019 Respectively

These shoes are inspired by geta, traditional Japanese wooden clogs. The thick sole is very reminiscent of the geta and gives the sneakers a cute look.

1183A525.500 Color: VIOLET/TIGER YELLOW


Releasing: August 2019

These are a reissue of the FABRE BL-S basketball shoes released back in 1975. They have been made more comfortable wear to fit with modern standards.

  • Onitsuka Tiger Releases Revamped Basketball Shoes

    13.January.2019 | FASHION

    Japanese shoe company Onitsuka Tiger will begin rolling out its new OK BASKETBALL MT and OK BASKETBALL LO shoes at branches across Japan from January 12.

    Onitsuka Tiger established in 1949 from its predecessor organisation ASICS. The following year the company released its mid-cut basketball shoes. The new OK BASKETBALL MT’s use those shoes as its base design while the LO’s are a low-cut arrangement of those.

    The form, material of the uppers, stitching, iconic metal eyelets, and rubber patches on the side of the uppers are close to the original design from 1950. The inside is also branded with Tiger’s official logo.

    The designs use the original model as their bases but have bee updated to fit a modern style and level of comfort. The inner soles are fitted with cushioned material for better comfort. Tiger’s OK BASKETBALL models have a classic look to them while also having modern wearability – you can feel their history by wearing them.

    Get your feet on a pair of Tiger’s ‘new’ shoes to call back their classic range.

  • Onitsuka Tiger Collaborates with Sansa Sakiori to Release 2 New Shoes

    07.June.2018 | FASHION

    ASICS Japan’s shoe brand Onitsuka Tiger has released two new pairs of shoes in collaboration with Sansa Sakiori who are based in the city of Morioka in Iwate Prefecture. The new releases are available at Onitsuka Tiger company stores throughout Japan as well as on their online shop.

    オニツカタイガー さんさ裂き織り工房

    Sakiori is a traditional method of weaving that has made it across the Tohoku region since the Edo Period. The material used is usually made from recycled garments and bits of kimono that are neatly woven together. Because the manufacturing is usually done by hand it can be hard to replicate with machines, meaning no two products are exactly the same, giving them their own unique charm.

    オニツカタイガー さんさ裂き織り工房 detail

    Two types of shoes were produced using this method: Onitsuka Tiger’s popular MEXICO 66 model and the GSM ‘coat type’ shoes.


    Scraps of denim are received for free from the marker during the weaving process which is used as a weft by the weavers in Tohoku to create the upper. Both are available in simple white or Onitsuka’s iconic tricolour with blue as the base.


    Look stylish with these new shoes that combine traditional methods with the modern Onitsuka Tiger – a true example of a product found only in Japan.
