Onitsuka Tiger stays on pace with this season’s love affair for retro runners with the Mexico 66
The year was 1968 and at the Olympic Games pretrials, a new pair of shoes worn by the national Japanese team took the world by storm. The Mexico 66 — created just two years ago — not only stood out for being the first pair to boast the now-recognisable Onitsuka Tiger stripes, but also for its premium attention to detail and craftsmanship.
More than half a century later, Onitsuka Tiger continues to stay right on pace with this season’s love affair for retro runners with the Mexico 66. The classic ‘60s shape and slim styling has made it reliably suitable for urbanites looking for both form and function, making it a staple with the street style set over the years.
