Onitsuka Tiger x Christian Dada 70th anniversary capsule
Rebilac runner in an all-black iteration

70 is the new 30, especially when it comes to Japanese sneaker brand Onitsuka Tiger, who are celebrating their 70 years of existence by hooking up with seven Japanese cult fashion designers to drop some limited-edition collections. Having joined forces with CINOH and KKtP, their third team-up is with none other than Masanori Morikawa of Christian Dada, who will help reimagine their classic Rebilac Runner along with a multi-toned sport suit. Thanks to Masanori Morikawa's urban chic style, the legacy running sneaker has now been given an all-black look, while the sport suit – featuring a jacket and pants – have been decorated with rubber patches that are part of Dada’s design ethos. And in classic Morikawa fashion, he's made the shoe a religious practice with a "Dadaism" print added right below to the heel counter for your cult designer shoe flex. So if you’re interested in upholding the Morikawa’s Dadaism philosophy, or celebrating Onitsuka Tiger’s recent birthday, expect the collaborative sneakers to arrive August 26. And if you're already asking for more, not to worry – more anniversary collaborations are on the way, including sulvan and a "secret guest". You'll just have to wait a little longer.
