Although we only have one pair of legs, one can never have too many pairs of shoes, and that’s especially the case with sneakers. From slip dresses, midi skirts, baggy boyfriend jeans and a 70s-style jumpsuit, there’s nothing a pair of sneakers won’t look good with.

With so many brands on the market to choose from, it’s easy to feel lost, but when it comes to sneakers it pays to stick to the OGs and no brand does a sneaker better than Onitsuka Tiger. As one of the oldest Japanese footwear companies, founded by Kihachiro Onitsuka, in 1949, the brand quickly found success with its trademark crossed stripe tiger marking.

You can imagine are excitement then when, just recently Onitsuka Tiger reinvented its classic running shoe the OHBORI™. Since its launch in 1974, the shoe has been a cult classic for the brand, favored by gold medalists and the fashion crowd alike. The new OHBORI EX™ retains the classic silhouette of the original design, except is updated with fuzeGEL™ technology and the outer sole has been updated with a “multi-elastic structure” for added cushioning and flexibility. Cool, comfortable and versatile, here’s 3 ways you can style them.

American Retro

The new OHBORI EX™ is available in 3 colors, they’re the perfect shoe for bringing a little more life into a classic jeans and white T-shirt look. The key here is to keep your look simple and let the shoes do all of the talking.

The Throw-on Dress

2020 was the year of the throw on dress, with its airy design and ability to look instantly polished making it a working from home staple. Easy to dress up or down, we love the pairing of a midi dress and sneakers, which has such a cool and effortless vibe to it.

Japanese Minimalism

The key to nailing simple, Japanese style is by sticking to high quality basics in tonal colours. We love the mixing of neutrals with denim or pairing multiple shades of the same colours for a fresh take on color blocking. The simple design of the OHBORI EX™ is a perfect match for Japanese minimalism.
