Onitsuka Tiger is ranked among the leading shoe making brands with its head office located in Japan. It was established in 1949 by an enthusiastic military man named Kihachiro Onitsuka who wanted to improve the footwear of persons every age group. He wanted to divert attention of the public away from the trauma of the recent World War which had ended only a few years previously.
His aim was to provide the public with comfortable sportswear that they would like and be admired. This was not only a step to make the Japanese people happy but also to ensure their healthy well being including their body and feet.
Indeed his name was taken as the brand name and Onitsuka Company Limited was formed.
Since its foundation, it has launched thousands of shoes for basketball teams, runners, volleyball, judo, karate men, hikers and athletes which are exported all over the world. Onitsuka was able to maintain very high standard in his footwear and due to this demand has reached an all time high.
At present it is earning its lion’s share of profit from sales in America, Europe, Canada and Asia and of course Japan. Onitsuka uses durable materials for shoes which result in long lasting shoes capable of enduring rough and tough conditions.
Onitsuka Tiger ensures the safety of the foot by making double cup soles and that’s why players feel themselves running on their soles when they are wearing Onitsuka.
Striped Mexico 66 Line was a massive hit for the company that set a record for the highest all time sales.
Future upcoming exciting projects include some innovative designs in a large range of colors for sportsmen out there.
