More and more these days we’re seeing fashion houses and designers work with our favorite brands, truly making sneakers a part (an important one at that) of fashion. Japanese brand Onitsuka Tiger‘s been known to be a fashion staple for many and they got together with Italian designer Andrea Pompilio to produce a special edition X-Caliber. The X-Caliber’s been in the OT archive for quite a while and we’re finally seeing the silhouette back (over the last few months, the X-Caliber’s been the silhouette of choice for streetwear brands and sneaker boutiques for their own collabs with OT).
Part of a three-pair pack, this Andrea Pompilio X-Caliber is done with a printed pattern on the upper while an ink splatter adorns the shoe’s midsole. A reflectorized blue heel gives the shoe some much needed contrast and break from the busy mix of patterns. Sole Academy‘s got the pair in limited numbers and I suggest you drop by their stores today before they sell out. The Andrea Pompilio x Onitsuka Tiger X-Caliber retails for Php 7,500.
