MEXICO MID RUNNER
A special shoe in OT history as it was given exclusively to the Japanese national team and not originally found in any catalogues from the time of Tokyo 64.
ONITSUKA TIGER is proud to present the eco-friendly ECOBEMBER PACK.
This collection includes a MEXICO 66 and MEXICO MID RUNNER in which the uppers feature re-formed cow leather fibres that would usually be thrown away. The surface uses recycled leather with a special coating.
In the interest of achieving a sustainable society, the materials have been chosen with environmental impact in mind, with, for example, recycled polyester shoelaces and organic cotton in the sock linings.
Paying tribute to classic athletic shoes of the 1960s, the MEXICO MID RUNNER model blends everyday style with levels of support and comfort.
This mid-cut version of the MEXICO MID RUNNER shoe was discovered in the ASICS archives in Kobe, Japan. It was originally intended to support the foot and ankle during high-intensity events such as the long jump, high jump, triple jump and pole vault.
Today, its retro style makes it a contemporary essential for men and women, adapting to the weekends with effortless ease.
