Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81 EX Cream Steeple Gray
Upgrade of the famous Ultimate 81 - novelty 2021
This facelift suits him well and lets you experience the perfect fusion of fashion and retro - without sacrificing the proven quality and comfort of Onitsuka Tiger!
The Ultimate 81 EX comes with a new sole. This is not only a little thicker, but also more noticeable in the heel area.
The Ultimate 81 was originally one of the very first long-distance running models with what was then (1981) revolutionary cushioning, which was made possible by 3 air holes. These were kept as a homage - as was the heel reinforcement, which is now contrasted in color and is a great visual highlight.
The fuzeGEL midsole and ORTHOLITE insole provide better cushioning.
The upper is a mix of soft leather and suede.
Two thumbs up Onitsuka Tiger!
Turns out a little smaller - better 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!
