Athletic runners with sole: Onitsuka Tiger launches the Sherborne Runner
Authentic, Japanese and Sports are but three words used to describe sneaker brand, Onitsuka Tiger.
Since its inception Onitsuka Tiger has created stylish sports products inspired by the Japanese values of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Ranging from street-wear to sports shoes – the designs are a mixture of urban, edgy streetwear to the more practical understated everyday sneakers.
Onitsuka Tiger continues to add to their updated range of retro running-inspired silhouettes with the launch of the Sherborne Runner. Drawing upon the blueprints of the ULTIMATE 81, one of the brand’s 1980s icons, Onitsuka Tiger celebrates the look of the classic but with updated materials and a midsole swap to aid longevity and performance.
The Sherborne Runner includes a synthetic mesh upper, raw eyelet lace-up, suede trims and cushioned sole. The trainers feature the signature Onitsuka Tiger stripe to the side and branded raised logo.
Key features include:
Synthetic mesh upper
Raw eyelet lace-up
Onitsuka Tiger branding
The shoe’s construction adds extra flexibility, cushioning and lightness, while the toe and heel area are reinforced for added durability. The Sherborne Runner key colourway is mid blue with white accents in mesh/synthetic suede and promises the wearer a spring in their step and total comfort – benefits synonymous with footwear from Onitsuka Tiger.
These athletic style runners which are great for light sport and casualwear retails for R849 and are exclusively available at selected Sneaker’s Edition stores nationwide: • Eastgate Mall (Johannesburg) • Savannah Mall (Polokwane) • I’langa Mall (Nelspruit) • Waterfall Mall (Rustenburg)
