ONITSUKA TIGER CELEBRATES 35th ANNIVERSARY OF CALIFORNIA 78

California is the spiritual home of many iconic moments and movements, including the jogging and fitness crazes of the 1970s and 1980s.

CALIFORNIA 78 was a masterpiece of that era’s Onitsuka Tiger collection. The 35th anniversary of its impact on sport and fashion is celebrated this year with a limited edition of 1,978 pairs.

Crafted in its original iconic yellow and mid-blue colourway the shoe retains its classic silhouette and ‘T-toe’ construction; while the original nylon base is replaced with a light mesh upper and suede overlays. The CALIFORNIA 78 revolutionised running with its reflective patch on the heel, an innovation inspired by the rising popularity of evening jogging in Japan.

CALIFORNIA 78 35th anniversary edition is available in Onitsuka Tiger flagship stores and selected retailers worldwide.
