What are the odds that a French fashion luxury brand and a Japanese leather shoe company are collaborating for the first time ever to produce sneakers?
Givenchy and Onitsuka Tiger have surprisingly partnered up to bring two variations of the classic Mexico 66SD, in triple white and in black. Both designs will spell out Givenchy on one side and feature Onitsuka Tiger’s trademark stripes on the other.
Both designs will carry the names of both partner brands on the shoe tongue and heel instead of just Onitsuka Tiger like all its other shoes.
The white version of the shoe is available to all, but sadly the black version is only available for men.
Both shoes will retail for S$850 in Singapore, while it is at USD$510 in the states. The limited edition shoes will be on the racks at all Givenchy and Onitsuka Tiger flagship stores. Thankfully we have a Givenchy store here in Singapore at Paragon and quite a couple of Onitsuka Tigers around.
These sneakers will also be available across the world, at the first ever Line pop-up store in Japan as well as on the Givenchy WeChat Store.
The Givenchy X Onitsuka Tiger shoes were first announced at the 2019 edition of the Pitti Uomo, where Givenchy was a special guest. The surprise unveiling was very much unexpected since Givenchy has never done a sneaker collaboration and were quite adamant about not doing so. Until now.
Will you be copping this pair? It’s not every day that two such brands collaborate so you better be running to town now.
