Christian Dada x Onitsuka Tiger Collaboration

Japanese footwear company Onitsuka Tiger is celebrating its 70 anniversary this year by releasing commemorative collaborations with seven designers. For the third joint effort, the brand calls on Masanori Morikawa of Christian Dada to reimagine the Rebilac Runner. Christian Dada’s collaborative Rebilac Runner is predominantly constructed from leather and mesh materials, featuring tonal branding and unique lacing that extends around the collar. We find the legacy running sneaker given an all-black look, constructed from a combination of leather and mesh. 
The shoelaces then extend up from the forefoot to wrap around the collar in a unique fashion. In addition to the Rebilac Runner, Christian Dada designed a complimentary jacket and pants. Both the breast and the inner back pocket of the pants are decorated with a rubber patch with a statement that is also the philosophy of Dadaism. The jacket and the pants are each optioned in black, dark green, and burgundy colorways. Christian Dada’s Onitsuka Tiger collab is due out August 26th.
