ASICS Tiger and UK based retailer Offspring have teamed up for the second part of they’re “Cobbled Street” Pack, in honor of the 20th Anniversary of the sneaker store.
This dope collab will be available in the different Offspring stores in the UK on July 15th. As far as I know, there won’t be a worldwide drop of this pair…
Offspring and Asics Tiger have teamed up, finding their inspiration in the paving stones and cobbled streets of the London based Covent Garden, the place where Offspring first opened back in 1996.
The collab features a mainly grey toned upper consisting of nubuck and premium suede and a light sand colored toe box. As on the first pair of the pack, the lining and the stripes on the medial site, are incorporated by a mint green color way, which reminds of the color palette of the Offspring logo in their beginnings. The final and personal touch comes with the details of =+ (Japanese for 20) on the sock liner and lace tips, honoring so the anniversary of the store and also the origin of the Japanese brand they’re working with.
I’m very excited about this collaboration. I was a big fan of the first part of the pack, which dropped back in April and I’m even a bigger fan of the second part. There has been lot of discussion in forums, regarding the originality of the pair, as it is indeed very simple. But sometimes simplicity is the key to success, as in this case. The different grey tones, the sand toe box and the finishing mint green touches on the lining and on the stripes are just a perfect combination.
Stay tuned for more on feet shots of this amazing collaboration, which continues the beautiful anniversary that Offspring is celebrating. The pair will be only available at Offspring locations and on they’re website on July 15th.
