‘NIPPON MADE’ COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE EXPRESSES JAPANESE TRADITION OF DETAIL AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Region: Europe
RELEASE DATE:

Luxury Edition Continues Celebrating The 30th Anniversary of COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE

As part of the model’s ongoing 30th anniversary celebrations, Onitsuka Tiger releases a new edition to the ‘NIPPON MADE’ series on the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE using the traditional Japanese technique ‘Kyo-Kanoko-Shibori’.

‘Kyo-Kanoko-Shibori’ is a traditional hand-dyeing technique used by specialised craftsmen in Kyoto to create a uniquely coloured design that never forms the same pattern. COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE ‘NIPPON MADE’ features deerskin leather, a material with historical use for Kyo-Kanoko-Shibori dating back to ancient times.

A distinctive characteristic of deerskin leather - a thin leather - is its ability to absorb a clear tie-dye pattern and vivid colour, while remaining soft to the touch.

This retro luxury expression of the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE perfectly fits ‘NIPPON MADE’. The ‘NIPPON MADE’ series embodies the elaborateness and sensitivity in design that is native to Japan.

COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2015. One of the pioneer trail running shoes in the ASICS family, the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE was created in the '80s and launched in 1985 at the peak of the running boom.

Onitsuka Tiger celebrates Japanese craftsmanship and focuses on sophisticated design and luxury details. ‘NIPPON MADE’ will be available starting March 2015 at Onitsuka Tiger stores across Europe. The shoe will retail from SRP €350.
