Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Knit True Red-True Red
The classic with a facelift made of knitted fabric
Mexico66 - formerly Limberup Mexico - was released as a running shoe in 1966 for the Olympic Games in Mexico City, which were held two years later. It was also the very first generation of Onitsuka Tiger Shoes which the Tiger Stripes (the later Asics flick).
With the relaunch of Onitsuka Tiger in 2001, the Limberup was renamed Mexico66.

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 (inside!) 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!
