Borrowing on a style originated by a model named for a Mexican chili pepper, this new release from Onitsuka Tiger takes its name from Brazil’s most famous peak. The Onitsuka Tiger Corcovado lends modern tech to the classic silhouette, its moniker connecting with further beauty by way of Rio de Janiero’s landmark Cristo Redentor statue. Fans of sleek old school runners like the 1970s Nikes, classic New Balances ending in -20 or even Onitsuka’s own Corsair will welcome these with open arms, and you can see the first two colorways after the jump.
