This month, Japanese fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger launches a new contemporary collection that combines fashion with sports, and heritage with innovation. The new OHBORI™ EX model, inspired by the “OHBORI™ shoe” which was first released in 1974 and worn by the Olympic medalist.

This new model features the sharp toe, which was a distinctive design point on the original model, has been reproduced. While maintaining its sporty and retro look, the OHBORI™ model has been revived in modern days as a hybrid shoe further adding high functionality. It consists of the outsole with improved cushioning thanks to the elastic multilayer structure, which was also used in the original “OHBORI™ shoe”, and a midsole made of fuzeGEL™,a light foam which has repulsiveness.

The OHBORI™ EX model will be on sale at RM539 in selected Onitsuka Tiger stores at Suria KLCC, Sunway Pyramid, Mid Valley Megamall and Southkey Mid Valley, and online at from September 2020 onwards.
