The exciting collaboration marks a novel beginning for both players. It’s the first time Onitsuka Tiger joins forces with a luxury fashion house, while it’s also the first time Givenchy has opted to work with an external sneaker manufacturer for a global campaign.

 

The new Givenchy X Onitsuka Tiger collaboration utilises the silhouette of Onitsuka Tiger’s iconic Mexico 66 heritage style. The drop offers two limited edition sneakers.

First, there’s a completely white sneaker decked with the instantly recognisable Onitsuka Tiger stripe lines and dotted “Givenchy” engraving.

Just in case you forget which collaboration these kicks are from, both models feature the inscription “Givenchy – Onitsuka Tiger” on the back tab.
