Onitsuka Tiger Delegation EX History
Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 was unveiled to the public in 1968 during the Olympic Parde of Nations. It was the first Onitsuka Tiger sneaker that wore the brand's signature stripe, which is also seen in ASICS sneakers until today.
The brand, later on, re-created and launched this classic iteration as Onitsuka Tiger Mexico Delegation. It features the vintage details with premium suede upper instead of the classic leather. To further establish its reputation as a streetwear trailblazer, the brand launched various versions of the Delegation. Most of these versions were inserted with modern technology to enhance comfort, lightness, and adaptability.
Another Delegation iteration recently unveiled is the EX version. The Onitsuka Tiger Delegation EX features design cues from the 60s added with Flytefoam Propel technology on the midsole and on the outsole. This tech is made of lightweight foam combination that absorbs shock effectively.
