Since its inception, the Japanese fashion brand, Onitsuka Tiger, has continued to create and innovate – working on top of their iconic designs. While newer releases take on new forms, it is ensured that certain elements stay true to the brand, providing us with familiar products we’ve come to appreciate. In early 2021, Onitsuka Tiger unveiled the MonsterPiece Series, featuring three different silhouettes, as well as the independent TAI-CHI-REB Sock MT.
In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the running shoe developed in 1981 by mobilizing the technologies of the time, Onitsuka Tiger has released the ULTIMATE 81 MP model, which leads the collection, having been updated in the latest style based on a modern interpretation.
While inheriting the distinctive elements of that time, the new model has been sublimated into a minimalist, modern design that fits a wide variety of styles. The midsole, which is composed of two layers, uses a uniquely developed material, making it a shoe that prioritizes both fashion and comfort.
In addition, the FABRE MP model, based on the heritage court shoe, FABRE, is met with a new colorway. Through light tones occupying the sneaker’s upper and midsole, we are given a fresh high-cut sneaker, capable of being paired with almost any outfit.
Wrapping up the MonsterPiece Series is the REBILAC RUNNER MP. Similar to the colorways found on the other silhouettes of this collection, the REBILAC RUNNER MP dons light shades of tan and white, which reinforces the contemporary vision behind the series.
Based on some of Onitsuka Tiger’s iconic performance models, these high-tech sneakers pursue minimalist designs with maximum style. More than just fashion, the MonsterPiece series is designed for versatility, appropriate for training, and various other activities.
TAI-CHI-REB Sock MT
Aside from the MasterPiece Series, Onitsuka Tiger has modernized the TAI-CHI-REB style, while staying true to the roots of the sneaker. The product is the mid-cut TAI-CHI-REB SOCK MT model, featuring a knit upper with a supple, one-piece design.
The Onitsuka Tiger Stripes applied to the upper accentuate the design while taking advantage of the slim impression form that is characteristic of TAI-CHI-REB design. In addition, by incorporating a heel-up type innersole, the sneakers achieve both comfort and aesthetic especially when worn.
