Onitsuka Tiger EDR 78 Wood Crepe Cilantro
Onitsuka Tiger's first jogging shoe for the general public
The EDR stands for ENDURO and was launched in 1978 as a jogging shoe for the general public. Until then, the Tiger models were mainly reserved for competition-oriented athletes, but the jogging boom swept across the United States and the demand for jogging shoes was huge.
The EDR 78 is characterized by the breathable mesh fabric, which is additionally reinforced with suede on the particularly stressed toe and heel areas. The raised sole also catches the eye. This provides more stability for trail running and was characteristic of the jogging shoes of that time.
The insole is equipped with Ortholite Foam Technology. This enables optimal suspension, high breathability, good moisture absorption and is super comfortable.
Material: suede & synthetic
Turns out a little smaller - it's better to order half a size larger!
Founded in 1949 by Kihachiro Onitsuka, Nippon's cult brand still inspires its wearers and is an integral part of the street scene. In 1977 OT was renamed ASICS and the brand disappeared from the scene for a few years. In 2002 OT made the long-awaited comeback - this time as a sports fashion brand. Former competition shoes received a contemporary update and from then on were only sold in a fashionable context. What has remained is the excellent quality with an extremely comfortable fit. Retro vibes with a pinch of understatement - not shy of looking into the future!
