This autumn, Onitsuka Tiger is introducing a new color version of NIPPON MADE, a lineup of items emphasizing Japanese craftsmanship, designed and created domestically.

The popular MEXICO 66 DELUXE model uses the traditional dyeing technique of Daisen Yuzen Zome, making a fantastic pattern inspired by the autumn leaves.

Daisen Yuzen Zome originated in Tottori Prefecture, the birthplace of the founder of Onitsuka Tiger. The dyeing process is done repeatedly for different colors, resulting in a unique, deep hue.

The new models use Daisen Yuzen Zome, as well as the batik method, (*1) to draw the maple leaves. Each pair of shoes will be slightly different, as they are handcrafted by artisans.

These rare shoes are available only during the 2018 fall season, so your chance to buy them is now! If you are interested, we recommend visiting a store soon.

*1 Batik method: A traditional dyeing method that uses wax.
