Founded in 1949 by Kihachiro Onitsuka, Onitsuka Tiger is one of the top shoe companies in Japan and the forerunner of Asics. With storefronts in all the trendiest districts of Tokyo, you would be surprised to know that their first trainers were basketball shoes. After being reborn as a fashion brand back in 2002, Onitsuka is still thriving. The sneakers have a vintage vibe, and the iconic Mexico 66 model is the most popular shoe of the collection. Make sure to stop by the Omotesando shop to admire the black woodgrain tiger- striped exterior, east-meets-west slick interior and to appreciate the quality and craftsmanship of the footwear.
