I LOVE my new yellow Onitsuka Tigers

I LOVE my new yellow Onitsuka Tigers.

My new yellow Onitsuka Tigers

It is the best brand name ever, as far as I can see. The Onitsuka bit makes them clearly Japanese, which is inherently cool, and the Tigers bit makes it obvious that they are worn by warriors. The combination of Japanese and warriors means that they are clearly for ninjas, samurai and kung-fuers.

They look brilliant - they are actually very tigery in their yellow with black stripes.

You can feel the pavement through the soles- it's a tactile experience walking along- it feels like you can probably do some kung fuing should you need to, gripping the floor with your prehensile toes to help in defeating your would-be assassins.

They also have movie heritage, from Bruce Lee and Kill Bill.

All in all, I LOVE my new yellow Onitsuka Tigers. You can buy a pair from Amazon here if you like:
