Trends tend to come a full circle every once in a decade or so. However, some trends never go out of style, and one of them is the classic chunky sneakers that just underwent a makeover by Onitsuka Tiger.
These chunky kicks are infinitely comfier than many other trends that have emerged and have singlehandedly transformed the dynamics between footwear and fashion today.
Onitsuka Tiger cements its status as a style trailblazer once again with the DELEGATION CHUNK, a shoe that combines both the iconic upper of the MEXICO DELEGATION with the voluminous sole from the CHUNKY RUNNER. The former is a revival model first worn by the Japanese team during the 1968 Mexico Games, while the latter is inspired by 90s platform shoes which re-dominated the fashion scene during Autumn/Winter 2019.
The result is a hybrid that’s not only ready to take to the streets but is also infused with modern technologies. The DELEGATION CHUNK’s hefty sole might appear weighty but is instead lightweight and flexible. Its heel section is equipped with fuzeGEL technology for high shock absorption, while the brand’s OrthoLite™ X-40 lends exceptional cushioning and resilience to its innersole for maximum comfort throughout the day.
Pair with high socks and your favourite denim for a casual-chic downtown look, or juxtapose its utilitarian silhouette with a feminine dress for spring. Either way, the shoes’ easy-to-coordinate colours ensure that you’ll turn heads for all the right reasons.
The new Onitsuka Tiger DELEGATION CHUNK retails for Rs 10,000 (approx) and is available online here. Deliveries will begin post lockdown.
