onitsuka takes the first of many steps
Onitsuka Tiger collaborated with Japanese film maker Takayuki Akachi on this beautiful and interesting short video “many steps”. Conceptually it’s meant to represent the collective steps taken around the world and the synchronized nature in which the world moves…blah blah blah. Basically its a lot of images of people from all over the world walking around in cool outfits and doing their typical routines. Consider it a 30 second world tour – with an exceptional opportunity to see how people across the globe dress. I love the contrast of colors, unusual footwear, use of leggings and traditional garb. Soak it all in people.
Of course the main attraction is the fantastic sneaker made by Onitsuka featured at the top and bottom of the video. If you don’t know this japanese shoe juggernaut, you better work it out. I have rarely ever seen a tiger shoe I haven’t loved. A few of my favorites from over the years are below and access to buy your own can be found HERE. Enjoy!
