Well, this was unexpected. Givenchy just took to the runways of Pitti Uomo 2019 to showcase a surprise sneaker collaboration with ASICS, more specifically, their Onitsuka Tiger division. Marking their first ever collection together, here’s everything that you need to know about these monochromatic masterpieces!
Taking on the iconic Mexico 66 GDX, the sneaker will be available in two distinct flavours. The ‘Triple Black’ pair features the tiger stripes outlined thick white strokes, complete with red detailing around the heel for a pop of contrast. On the other hand, the all-white pair boasts perforated “GIVENCHY” branding on the medial, emphasising the shoe’s collaborative nature. Both models are crafted in Japan and are made from premium leather.
The Givenchy x Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 sneakers are scheduled to hit Givenchy’s web store, the first-ever Line pop-up in Japan, and both brand’s flagship stores. Let us know what you think of this surprise collaboration, and while you’re here, be sure to take a look at the full ASICS trainer range now!
