The shoe of the Seventies, the platform gave the height-boosting shape of a stiletto with an added touch of comfort. Taking the style of this retro-favourite and bringing it fashion forwards, we’ve introduced the striking shape of the platform across our collections – including the DELEGATION EX and POKKURI sneakers
Platforms rose to the occasion in the 1970s, offering a new option for anyone who didn’t believe style meant compromising on comfort. Adding the boost of an elevated sole for a softer arch and comfier feet, platforms kept the sleek shape of a high heel but made them more practical, and wearable, for different outfits and occasions.
Innovating a style staple and making it more accessible and more individual is at the core of the Onitsuka Tiger brand, so it’s not surprising we have evolved the platform silhouette even further.
The POKKURI SNEAKER PLATFORM showcases the TIGER CORSAIR™ EX design for a classic Onitsuka Tiger athletic aesthetic, with the addition of a forefoot wedge to the traditional midsole instantly taking this platform sneaker from a seventies throwback to a contemporary statement. The range of colours let you show off your style further – choose from a classic white, soft cream and sun coral, or a pop of colour with white and sour yuzu. Using the same model as our bold CHUNKY RUNNER the DELEGATION CHUNK platform sneaker is a classic made contemporary. Suede leather honours our heritage of intricate craftmanship while the fuzeGEL technology supports shock absorption for unparalleled comfort. Forget what you thought you knew about a platform shoe – this low top sneaker is suited for any style, any day. Some use style as self-expression, others need a look to last wherever the day takes them.
