RELEASE DATE: 2017.05.12
The new store openings will help to raise brand awareness for both brands in South Korea.
ASICS announces the opening of the ASICS Tiger brand concept store on Garosugil Road in Seoul’s Sinsa-dong area on April 7, as well as the re-opening of the Onitsuka Tiger flagship store in Seoul’s Myeongdong special district on April 27.
○ASICS Tiger Garosugil Store
The ASICS Tiger Garosugil Road Store is the second ASICS Tiger brand concept standalone store, following the first in Osaka’s Shinsaibashi.
The store conveys a high-class atmosphere through marble shoe walls and shiny white center tables, while simultaneously expressing street elements like mortar walls and guard rails. On the ceiling, a straight yellow accent line expresses the innovativeness and freedom of a brand that seeks freshness and breaks uniform space.
Local fashion-conscious young shoppers have been visiting the popular new location since its opening.
ASICS will continue to collaborate with well-known select sneaker shops to offer quality and design backed by the company’s history and technology, as an ever-evolving sports lifestyle brand improving lives around the world.

The creative and original interior is intended to express the Onitsuka Tiger brand’s global feel.
