Onitsuka Tiger and Valentino Limited Edition Collaboration shoes launched at Valentino’s Autumn Winter 2020 Men’s Collection presentation in Paris
January 23, 2020: Made in Japan sports-inspired fashion brand, Onitsuka Tiger, has announced a limited-edition sneaker collaboration with Valentino for the Autumn-Winter 2020 Paris Menswear Collection. Founded by Kihachiro Onitsuka in 1949, Onitsuka Tiger shares the same attitude and attention to details and craftsmanship as the iconic Maison Valentino.
A conversation between Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director of Maison Valentino and Onitsuka Tiger led to creating an exclusive style of the renowned MEXICO 66™ SD sneakers. The MEXICO 66™ SD sneaker has been reinterpreted by Pierpaolo Piccioli in four different shades with the Valentino V Logo on the side, that enhance the importance of the power of colour, an iconic element for the Maison. The dramatic ‘V’ placed over the Onitsuka Tiger Stripe is hand-printed one by one. A special co-branded logo can be found on the shoe-tongue as well as on the insole. This model boasts a midsole with superior cushioning and a proprietary outsole that is durable and slip-resistant.
The Valentino collection shoes will be available in select Valentino retail stores around the world and on Valentino.com. At Onitsuka Tiger, one model in the brand’s signature ‘tricolour’ will be available at select stores and online. The models will be launched in the summer of 2020.
