Asics “Kill Bill” Gel Saga II

When Beatrix Kiddo aka “The Bride” did battle with the Crazy 88’s in Kill Bill the film went from colour to black and white because it was far too gory red for the censors. The character was rocking a yellow and black jumpsuit with matching Asics, Bruce Lee style during the scene. (Which were the very first pair of sneakers I sold on eBay.) Referencing that, Asics has hooked up a colorway of the Gel Saga II in yellow and black with a bloody red speckled midsole, which is supported by a gum ouytsole. Look for a drop in 2013

For the first time along with the three inch versions being given away free with every Onitsuka Tiger purchase in Offspring stores there are a very limited run of the 20 inch versions that are only available to win, along with a pair of the yellow & black Mexico 66s.

Onitsuka Tiger Monte Pokhara

Onitsuka Tiger introduces a new series of colourways for one of the brand’s older styles, the Monte Pokhara. The original Monte Pokhara model was seen in the mid 50s as an outdoor shoe. It’s mountaineering origins are evident on the profile and minimalistic design. There is something about these that I really like i thing its the high ankle opening just makes the silhouette alot better.
