Onitsuka Tiger brings the oriental touch to this spring-summer 2012

Halfway between sportswear and casual style, Japanese firm installing this, younger sister (or more depending how you look) sports signature Asics.

In fact the relationship between the two marks (operating independently) remains only latent in the designs, where the famous logo of the sports zapatilas appears clear in the shoes of Onitsuka Tiger.

For this spring-summer 2012 the stake of the Japanese firm remains true to what has been showing seasons ago where they tries to combine the versatility of food and drinking shoes while providing a touch more casual and very wearable.

The curious thing about this signature is that each model is colored according to traditional dyeing techniques in Japan, so that each model will have colors very similar but not identical.

This season the company will launch with two lines, first line Aisen, a Japanese word that comes from merging the words and indigo dye.

As you can see is based on blue denim tones while traditional designs interspersed with a more casual, even reversal a classic oxford brogue, which Nike has already performed well this season but with a model of boot.

The other line comes with the name Kakhisibu and as you can see not only by name but by the color, khaki is the protagonist almost all, in fact the persimmon juice is used to dye the shoes of this line.

In this line we find a new version of the legendary Onitsuka model, the Mexico 66 each year than re-releases. I think it is salvageable as we see in this collection.
