Although they are celebrating their 25th anniversary, Oshman’s doesn’t have a particularly huge profile outside of Japan. But that might change when word gets out about their Gel Yeti! The Yeti is a mythological creature said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet. Living up in the hills means you’d need a decent set of boots (with Gel inserts) and with ASICS’ ‘Easy on and off’ lacing system, these Yetis would be just the thing for a burly beast with clumsy paws. They’re definitely on the abominable side of life, but don’t you know it, that’s why we love Japan. As seen in Sneaker Freaker Issue 19.
