Onitsuka Tiger, Japan’s legendary sports brand, has a great athletic heritage. Famous for its high quality, innovative products for athletes throughout history, Onitsuka Tiger shoes and apparel are made by adapting traditional methods and designs with the contemporary.
Introduced in 1966, the Mexico 66 were the first Onitsuka Tiger shoes to bear the brand’s now-famous stripes. They were worn at the 1968 Mexico Olympics.
Conceived in 2006 by Asia’s leading beer, Tiger Translate has been working with pioneers in the creative industry to uncover over 150 multi-disciplinary creatives from across Asia and form a collective known as Tiger AKAs (Asian Kinetic Artists).
To showcase talents of Tiger AKAs, Tiger Translate has hosted events and exhibitions in cities like New York, Berlin, Sydney, Shanghai and Beijing. Boosting Tiger AKAs’ profile further are a series of East-meets-West collaborations with established international artists like Faile (US), Rostarr (US), Surface To Air (US), Jeremyville (Australia), Ben Frost (Australia), Nomad (Germany), Stefan Marx (Germany) and Jon Burgerman (UK)
