Heavily textured clothes like denim dresses, jeans, and jackets, entirely complement the brushed-up, hairy look of the Onitsuka Tiger Corsair Soft Marty.

All of the sneakers under the Soft Marty franchise project a "Birch" earth-tone colorway. The Onitsuka Tiger Corsair contains a scaly heel counter and tab which adds aesthetic effect to the tonal colorway of the sneaker.

Onitsuka Tiger started producing shoes for kids in 1949 when Japan was still recovering from the war. Kihachiro Onitsuka strived to improve on the quality of his product which resulted with the OK shoe; a basketball sneaker that has an updated sole technology during the time. From there, standards were set, and the Onitsuka Tiger brand was slowly being noticed.

As their product catalog expanded, so did their popularity which even reached international waters. Onitsuka Tiger's vast sportswear knowledged was picked up by an Oregon track coach by the name of Bill Bowerman. Bowerman pitched ideas to redesign the soles of the Marup and give it a three-layer spin that contains an outsole, a heel wedge, and a midsole. The sneaker, coined the Corsair, was designed to rock the platform of American soil and was a massive hit in the late 60s.

Today, the Corsair is considered as one of the most coveted sneakers that ever touched the face of the earth due to its superior vintage appeal and the rich history behind its creation. Many high-end iterations of the Corsair were witnessed through the years including one with a "biodegradable" feature via the Onitsuka Tiger Corsair Soft Marty.

The Onitsuka Tiger Corsair Soft Marty is part of the Soft Marty Collection which features three silhouettes that are made in an environmentally-friendly procedure. The Mexico 66, GSM, and Tiger Corsair showcases uppers that are chrome-free which are harmful to the people manufacturing the shoes.
