Last week team shoephoric dropped by Onitsuka Tiger’s first pop-up store in the Philippines. Perfectly nestled in Greenbelt 5’s Fashion Walk, the huge pop-up store brought back a lot of good memories with the brand. On a personal note, Onitsuka Tiger would be one of the sneaker brands that started the team’s shoe obsession. Before the whole concept of shoephoric, we were on a regular to see the latest drops from this Japanese label. And even as our shoe collection grew we always had a special liking for Onitsuka Tiger.
Onitsuka Tiger Pop Up Store is decked out with the good old classics, collab pairs, and exclusive releases. Here’s a rundown of shoes to check out before it sells out.
The all new MEXICO 66 KNIT. The iconic silhouette gets a fresh marled knit upper in four different colorways: True Red x True Red and Black x Black in unisex sizing; and Corydalis Blue x Corydalis Blue and Peach Beige x Peach Beige in women’s sizing. It’s the first time the MEXICO 66 was revamped with a knit upper. The result offers epic lightness and added comfort and breathability.
The exclusive COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE MT SAMSARA collab pair with I Love Ugly. The limited edition all white model is a spectrum between high fashion and athleisure. We’ll be giving you full details and a closer look at this pair in our upcoming shoe review.
Spring/Summer 2017 Onitsuka Tiger X ANDREA POMPILIO. Dubbed as the “Urban Safari”, the collection draws inspiration from Onitsuka Tiger’s archive footwear models from the 1950’s. Clothing pieces and shoes feature bold stripes in Pompilio’s signature street style aesthetic.
Onitsuka Tiger Greenbelt 5 Pop-Up Store will be up until June 8 only. So do drop by their shop at the Ground floor, Fashion Walk (Chateau area) Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City.
