Onitsuka Tiger Stripes Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Take the time to go to Pedders on Scotts to check out M66: Of Different Stripes, an exhibition set up by Onitsuka Tiger to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their iconic stripes. Learn about their history and milestones, sprawled out amidst shoe models and 50 art pieces by Singapore-based artists.
Using a base of pure white MEXICO 66 shoes, these 50 artists have added their own personality and interpretation of the Onitsuka Tiger Stripes story to a pair of shoes in a vibrant and dazzling array.
These decorated shoes aren’t the only fun thing to look at, because they are also set up on themed backdrops to add to the story of each shoe, as well as the fun aspect of the entire showcase. Onitsuka Tiger even produced a collection of red Onitsuka Tiger shoes in honor of Singapore’s National Day.
The exclusive opening of this exhibition was on July 29, and featured the public debut of four archived vintage Onitsuka Tiger shoes, including the first pair of shoes to carry the Onitsuka Tiger Stripes. Luckily enough for everyone else, the exhibition is on for another four days, until August 14.
