Originally established in the Japanese city of Kobe, Onitsuka Tiger is returning to its roots with the new Kobe Collection. Made of the finest quality, these trainers are made from the world famous Kobe leather and are subtly embellished with the tiger stripes.

The Fabre BL-L is the high top version of the BL-S Basketball shoe. Finished in the finest Kobe leather with subtle stripe detailing underlining the premium nature of this product.
Comes in light brown in sizes 4-13 for £120.00.
Kohaku DX Kobe
Meaning ‘amber’ in Japanese, the Kohaku is a new style for this season and is based on the classic shaping of basketball shoes. Again, finest Kobe leather and a subtle Tiger Head logo on the collar make for a very premium execution.
Comes in black in sizes 4-13 for £130.00.
Mexico Midrunner DX Kobe
The Mexico Midrunner DX combines the sleek and sophisticated look of the Mexico DX and the unique appeal of the high top. Finished here in premium Kobe Leather.
