Springtime in Japan is from mid-April to May, and the season is perfect for traveling. The weather is moderate, so visitors can enjoy walking around various sightseeing spots.

Some people make a visit to Japan in spring to view the field of rapeseed blossoms in the southern Boso area of Chiba, the nemophila flower garden at Hitachi Seaside Park or the wisteria vines at Ashikaga Flower Park, all of which are at their best during this time of the year.

A pair of comfortable shoes are necessary to enjoy strolls through urban areas and outdoor spots filled with flowers. During your stay in Japan, you should look for shoes that are both stylish and capable of high-performance.

Onitsuka Tiger, a popular sports shoes brand, has released colorful new items fit for the warm, spring climate. With these shoes, you will be able to fully enjoy your trip without getting tired from walking around.

This article introduces the features of the Onitsuka Tiger MEXICO 66 PARATY and MEXICO 66 SLIP-ON, which are both slip-on types, as well as information on special discounts available in Japan.

The most strongly recommended Onitsuka Tiger item this spring is the new version of MEXICO 66 PARATY. The brilliant stripes stand out against the base color, making them a perfect fit for casual clothing. These shoes should go well with either short pants or denim.

MEXICO 66 PARATY is a slip-on version of MEXICO 66, a popular item in the Onitsuka Tiger lineup. As the rear portion of the shoe is made of a soft material, these shoes can be worn normally, or with an open back.

These shoes are easy to take off, so they will come in handy when you enter the tatami rooms at temples or restaurants. You can actually step on the rear part of the shoe to cool your feet on a warm day, or when you plan to spend most of the time walking around.

You won't get tired in these shoes, as the same cushion material of MEXICO 66, which are running shoes, is used in the inner sole. MEXICO 66 PARATY should make your stay in Japan a pleasant and happy one.

A New Color Version of MEXICO 66 SLIP-ON

MEXICO 66 SLIP-ON is the same type as MEXICO 66 PARATY, a slip-on version of MEXICO 66.

An elastic band is used across the instep, improving the fit. Soft materials also cover the heel, so you won't feel tired even after long hours of walking. There is no need to tie the shoelaces, making them the right shoes for spring sightseeing in Japan.

Let's take a look at the new models of MEXICO 66 SLIP-ON.
