The uppers are made from recycled polyester, and soles are a combination of Nike’s impact absorbing material used when making their ZoomX foam and material scraps. The plain shoebox, too, is made from recycled materials.

There’s also a collection of t-shirts which are available on first-come, first-served basis to those who pick up a pair of Space Hippie sneakers. Designs were made by popular graphic artists GUCCIMAZE and COIN PARKING DELIVERY as well as the up-and-coming shop BOTANIZE.

  • Onitsuka Tiger x Doi Tung Sustainable Sneaker Collection Revealed

    24.May.2021 | FASHION

    Onitsuka Tiger has announced the release of a new sneaker collection in collaboration with the Doi Tung Development Project in Thailand. The collection will be released on May 24 at Onitsuka Tiger stores in Omotesando, Osaka Shinsaibashi, and Kobe, as well as the brand’s online store.

     

     

    MEXICO 66 Unisex Model | ¥13,200 (Tax Included)

    MEXICO 66 PARATY Unisex Model | ¥11,100 (Tax Included)

    MEXICO 66 Thai Exclusive Model

     

     

    Onitsuka Tiger is a Japanese sports fashion brand that combines heritage and innovation to create contemporary collections.

    The Doi Tung Development Project is the leading project of Mae Fah Luang Foundation, a non-profit organisation. Onitsuka Tiger has banded together with the project to create sustainably-produced sneakers .



    The Onitsuka Tiger x Doi Tung collection shines a spotlight on the traditional craftsmanship of Thailand’s craftsmen in three models: MEXICO 66, MEXICO 66 PARATY, and SERRANO. The sneaker’s designs feature hand-woven textiles inspired by traditional patterns from Thai culture. These textiles take a week to produce by hand from start to finish and are softer than fabric woven by machines. The combination of red and blue serves as a nod to Onitsuka Tiger’s signature look. The red and yellow fusion on the soles also represents the key colours of Doi Tung and Onitsuka Tiger.

     

    The collaboration not only serves as an homage to Thai handiwork, but as an opportunity to create more jobs too. The sneakers also represent the relationship between Thailand and Japan.
