MEXICO MID RUNNER DELUXE model belongs to our "Nippon Made" collection. Since starting in 2008, "Nippon Made" conveys Japan's craftsmanship of making things. Building one of these shoes is a labor-intensive process: from the stitching to the dyeing, every step is done by a skilled hand. The materials used and the attention to detail portray the height of Japan's artisanal quality.
Blending supreme style with reliable support, the unisex MEXICO Mid Runner lifestyle sneaker by Onitsuka Tiger is a special shoe in the brand's history, as it was not originally found in any catalogues from the time of Tokyo '64.
This mid-cut version was later discovered in the archives of ASICS Research and Development, in Kobe, originally intending to support the ankle during long jumps, high jumps, triple jumps and pole vaulting. Today, its retro style makes it a contemporary lifestyle sneaker for both men and women, adapting to the weekends with effortless ease.
