Yet another sportswear brand teams up with luxury for a collaboration that has a dual mission: to create a capsule collection of great appeal and gather funds for anti-Covid-19 initiatives. The protagonist of this joint venture between Onitsuka Tiger and Valentino Garavani is in fact the iconic silhouette of Mexico 66 SD. The shoe has been revamped with the “V” logo of Valentino placed in a prominent position: embossed on top of the classic Onitsuka Tiger stripes on the outside of the upper, it is hand-printed. The shoe’s tongue has a special co-branded logo. In terms of performance, the heel and sole are made using materials that ensure a high degree of cushioning along with durability and excellent slip resistance.
The colour variants range from white to bright colours like shocking orange, safety yellow, and hot pink, the three-colourway white/blue/red, and white/red: available in select stores of Valentino and online, all profits from the sale of this model will be donated to the non-profit organisation Kidsdoor that provides assistance and support for the Covid-19 emergency.
