With the great success of Asics’ classic running collaborations in recent years, it’s only natural to see Onitsuka Tiger reach further back into its vaults for some vintage teamups. First they teamed with Scotland’s Hanon and there’s one on the way from Russia’s FOTT, and now comes one from a southern California shop in conjunction with a Colorado-based clothing concern. This Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 ’6200 FT’ was created by BAIT with the help of Akomplice Clothing, its name and look drawing on Akomplice’s hometown of Carbondale, CO.
