We've never been huge fans of 'wafer-thin' sneaks but when it comes to Onitsuka Tiger's Mexico 66, we're willing to let this one slide – the OG white with blue and red pops is classic OT track and field! Keeping true to its roots, the Mexico 66 comes in two flavours - full leather or a more vintage looking nylon treatment. Available now!
FROM THE PRESS RELEASE
Onitsuka Tiger’s MEXICO 66 DX is a must-have for sneaker fans who appreciate laid-back, classic style. Designed to take the urban streets by storm, this modern interpretation of the original MEXICO 66 combines a new silhouette with top-notch detailing and two different fabric options to deliver the perfect partner for any outfit.
The new MEXICO 66 DX takes to the streets with a longer, slimmer silhouette that sits snug around the foot for a flattering and comfortable fit. The original heel reinforcement and heel flap design features of the MEXICO 66 maintain their position on this season’s re-mastered shoe to accentuate its heritage and attention to detail. A jagged tread on the outsole and detailing such as suede reinforcements and the famous Tiger stripes in either leather or nubuck add an eye-catching finish to this stylish shoe.
Two carefully selected fabric options complement the look of this lace-up perfectly. A super-soft leather upper in simple colourways of Black/White or White/Daphne delivers elegance with a stylish edge to any outfit, while the lightweight nylon version boasts leather detailing and eye-catching colour combinations of Classic Green/Black or Estate Blue/Tango Red for added flair.
The MEXICO 66 DX will be available from Onitsuka Tiger stores and selected retail outlets from January 2010 at a RRP of €120.
