Doodled on Tigers

Posted on July 16, 2007 Under Fashion

Onitsuka Tiger, the hip tattoo artist to its parent company Asics‘ podiatrist, is showing off. These Onitsuka Tiger Rakugaki shoes have a unique scribbled-on look "” which makes sense because apparently rakugaki means “doodle” in Japanese "” while maintaining the classic and recognizable Onitsuka Tiger logo. I don’t have a lot else to say about these except that I covet them but there’s no information anywhere as to their availability or the release date. But while you’re at the Onitsuka Tiger website, and you didn’t catch it here the first time around, you may as well check out the Made of Japan link as well. It’s a collage of tiny images from the Japanese internet which combine to make a shoe; each image is linked to its origin, so you could probably spend about two days just clicking around it if you wanted to…and I might do just that.
