Globally-renowned Japanese sneaker brand Onitsuka Tiger and Japanese makeup brand Shu Uemura have collaborated to produce a sneaker that will go on sale May 1, 2020.

A new model “DELEGATION EX ™ ” inspired by the original model worn by Japanese athletes for the 1964 Summer Olympics was used as a base. A resilient sponge material, FLYTEFOAM ™ Propel, was used for the midsole which gives it a sense of volume and wearing comfort. The Onitsuka Tiger and Shu Uemura brand logos are imprinted at the ends of the spare shoelaces of the same color, and the shoes have an active, urban, and sporty look.
