Arguably Japan's most popular shoe brand, the Onitsuka Tiger, is one of those brands which surpassed the test of time, dating back to 1949. Its founder, Kihachiro Onitsuka, realized that many children did not have shoes at that time due to the devastating effects of the war. He established the Onitsuka Co. Ltd., which targets young people who are into athletics.
Over the initial decades of its existence, the brand steadily gained its reputation as a performance footwear manufacturer. In 1977, Onitsuka Tiger merged with two companies, GTO and Jelenk, to launch a new shoe brand, ASICS. The name is the abbreviation of the Latin phrase "anima sana in corpore sano," which means "a sound mind in a sound body."
Today, the brand is still releasing heritage shoes using its original label. In 2008, a high-end collection of Onitsuka Tiger shoes named Nippon Made (Made in Japan) was introduced. This collection highlights the exceptional Japanese craftsmanship.
The Onitsuka Tiger Colesne RS is one of the recent additions to the Nippon Made collection. This low-top and the other shoes in the collection are products of a labor-intensive method as each step of the shoe-making process is done by hand.
Due to its minimalistic construction and unassuming color schemes, the Onitsuka Tiger Colesne RS has a modest appeal that makes it a great option for an everyday shoe. Pairing it with casual clothes such as pants or shorts with a t-shirt make for a very laidback vibe. Its Carbon colorway can be considered for those semi-formal occasions because of its classy aesthetic.
The low-top Onitsuka Tiger Colesne RS is available for both men and women. For US men’s sizes, it starts from 4.5 to 11.5. For US women's sizes, it can be acquired from 8 to 13. Its traditional lacing enclosure offers a secure fit while the upper consists of natural leather which allows breathability and comfort.
Its rubber outsole exhibits a floral-like pattern that delivers traction on various surfaces.
- On its official website, the shoe price ranges from $180 to $190.
- Color schemes offered include Gunmetal and Carbon.
