Onitsuka Tiger Corsair Limited OG
Here’s a history lesson for you. In the 60s Bill Bowermann & Phil Knight did all the distribution for the Japanese Brand Onitsuka Tiger, together they created the Onitsuka Tiger Corsair, which was originally was called “Cortez”. A court case late, the Cortez became a Nike staple and Onitsuka Tiger had the Corsair. Originally introduced in 1969, the Onitsuka Tiger Corsair was one of the first running shoes (next to the Cortez) to feature an thick midsole for extra cushion.
Available now via A-few is the retro Edition of the iconic Corsair Shoe in honor of its 44th Birthday.
