Onitsuka Tiger Cycling


Referencing Onitsuka Tiger’s heritage in sport as a reference and designing for current lifestyle trends, this cycling inspired shoe has a leather upper whos perforations are placed as if wind-tunnel blown.The combination of rubber and leather in the outsole gives durability and traction and a nod to traditional footwear craftsmanship.
Looking at cycling and speed as inspiration and how that can be visualized in the upper with the perforations in the toe. Also, wanted to mix materials in the outsole with leather for a nod to traditional footwear and rubber for traction.
