On January 15th, Onitsuka Tiger announced a limited-edition sneaker collaboration with Valentino for the Autumn Winter 2020 Paris Menswear Collection.
A conversation between Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director of Maison Valentino and the Japanese sports-inspired fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger, where an exclusive style of the renowned MEXICO 66™ SD sneakers has been conceived.
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 color, 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 outersole that is durable and slip resistant.
Onitsuka Tiger is a made in Japan sports-inspired fashion brand founded by Kihachiro Onitsuka in 1949, that shares the same attitude and care in the attention to details and craftsmanship of Maison Valentino.
The Valentino collection shoes are available in four vibrant colors that are iconic to the Valentino brand. These four models 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 ‘tricolor’ will be available at select stores and online. The models will be launched in the summer of 2020. Details such as price, store locations and how to purchase will be announced at a later time.
