Before the world was introduced to the brand known as ASICS, the recognizable four crossed stripes that grace the sides of their shoes belonged to another popular Japanese footwear brand. In 1977, Onitsuka Tiger joined into a three-way merger to form ASICS, and while they may have relinquished the name for awhile, their stripes have been going strong ever since.

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.  Each of the 504 pairs’ ‘lift ticket’ hangtag is individually numbered, and they’ll be up for grabs on the BAIT store’s one year anniversary, October 19th.  BAIT is offering reservation tickets from 10/14 through the 17th and those looking to buy from the e-store can get an email invite by signing up online.

How well has the return of the Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 been received by the sneaker buying public?  One only needs to look at Hanon’s ‘Northern Liites’ collab and the first new Onitsuka using Asics Gel in the Harandia to realize that the Colorado 85 (and its California 78 forebear) have made an impact in the scorching hot retro running niche.  This new pair offers a thoroughly contemporary mix of black with purple and neon green accents, but it’s grounded in the timeless appeal of a gum outsole.  You’ll see them from more angles after the jump, then find yours in stock at shops like Flatspot.

hanon northern liites summary Hanon x Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 “Northern Liites”

It looks like Hanon’s latest collab release is one that will reprise a theme of old. That would be the Hanon x Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 “Northern Liites”, a pair that echoes their 2010 Asics GT-II “Northern Liites” release. We’re unsure of the reasoning behind the strange spelling here, but it certainly seems like they could have went with “Lytes” instead and switched things over to an Asics model featuring that tech to really knock the nomenclature out of the park. Anyways, stay tuned after the jump for the full gallery on the Hanon x Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 “Northern Liites” pair and watch for them to release on August 31st from Hanon.

We’re still waiting on its Marathon Pack entrant, but the Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 has still made a nice comeback in 2013 even without that as yet unreleased pair.  Here’s a new one that you can get your hands on, which is going to satisfy the same folks who find the upcoming black and tan Asics Gel Lyte III appealing.  These switch up that formula just a bit, going with grey Tiger stripes and a bit of wheat suede, in addition to swapping the midsole speckling for a gum outsole.  Let us know which of these fall drops is your favorite, then grab the latest Colorado 86s from End.

Asics has succeeded in recent years on the strengths of its 1990s classic runners, so it’s only natural to see the Onitsuka Tiger heritage label turn their attention to old school running shoes.  This Onitsuka Tiger Marathon pack takes it back to the days of suede and nylon with the Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66, California 78 OG Vin and Colorado 85 taking on colors in tribute to the 26.2 milers run in Paris, Tokyo and New York, respectively.  All three have 42.195KM gold stamping and each features its respective city’s race route on the insoles.  Click through to see more and let us know how this theme stacks up against the top Asics collaborations.

We haven’t seen any collaborators reach back into Asics’ pre-Gel era runners, but lucklily there are more new in-house styles on the horizon.  The Onitsuka Tiger Colorado ’85 takes us back almost three decades with its sleek upper and dual-density midsole, but this new charcoal and pink colorway is the kind of thing that’s become more fashionable in today’s age.  Stick with Sneaker News to see if these Colorado 85s make their August projected ship date and check out more images below in the meantime.
