Onitsuka Tiger Trainers

Onitsuka Tiger Trainers and Clothing

Kihachiro Onitsuka founded Onitsuka Tiger in 1949 and sold a basketball shoe. He took inspiration from the suckers on an octopus on his dinner plate one day and used the concept for better grip. Luckily, Mrs Onitsuka didn’t do the bangers and mash she’d originally been planning.

After some mergers and growth, Onitsuka Tiger is now a vintage range under the ASICS banner. Stylish, retro trainers which I always make sure I have at least one pair sitting in the wardrobe. Check some of them out below…
