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.

Onitsuka Tiger’s Electric Tiger Land shoe launched last week in a limited edition across the country.
The shoe has a Japanese cityscape design which comes alive thanks to embroidery detailing and UV-reactive printing. Available in black and white from Size?, Offspring and Foot Asylum and in red from Onitsuka Tiger’s Newburgh street shop they retail at £80.
Lucky for me I have large feet because these Onitsuka Tigers only come in men’s sizes. I wouldn’t normally go for shoes so bright but somehow these work. They’re £49.99 from Office and will look great with a pair of really dark indigo jeans to make the colour pop.
On our way back from the Arcadia Press Day we decided to make a detour to the Onitsuka Tiger shop to try out their new vending machine. I got a bit carried away and ran off with a pair of trainers, I don’t think Gemma was expecting that!
Sticking to their Japanese roots Onitsuka Tiger launched the world’s first vending machine for trainers today.
The 80’s trend started out as one movement
but then fragmented into whatever you took to be 80’s. On one side was the
coloured jeans 80’s trend, thankfully that was short lived. On the other side
was the 80’s as seen in the film “The
Business“, starring down-to-earth cockney superbloke Danny Dyer. If you’re
looking to complete your superbloke look then these Onitsuka Tiger trainers
should do the job. Or the business, if you’re into bad puns.
Smart trainers are a great staple, perfect for smartening up casualwear and making suits look less stuffy, so I’ve picked five that will easily take you from work to the weekend.
