ASICS Tiger & Onitsuka Tiger

These are some selected projects (which have been released) I worked on during my traineeship. 


Originally launched in the 1990s, the GEL-MAI is back in 2017, and Patta have added their personal touch to this special shoe.

The GEL-MAI offers a unique asymmetrical lacing system and fuzegel technology emphasizing the cushioning,

which is a key feature of this shoe. By origin a trail model, The ASICSTIGER x Patta GEL-MAI Knit has been outfitted with materials

for daily wear, consisting of a dark brown premium nubuck overlay, set against a comfortable knitted upper in a rose cloud color.

The sock-like upper features Patta’s Script logo interwoven throughout, and 3M reflective accents on the webbing.

Every pair comes with additional rose cloud and brown laces.

The ASICS GEL-Mai made a suprise return by the way KITH's "Legends Day" capsule in november 2016. The GEL-Mai makes its way to across the Atlantic to Slam Jam, which offers up their own takes of the ASICS runner in much more colorful options - green/violet and black/blue. Slam Jam kicks it up a few notches with some bold and unconvential color cambinations that break up the monotony of tonal-colored sneakers.

Ontisuka Tiger x DISNEY

ASICSTIGER and Disney return with a special pack of GEL-Lyte sneakers, reworking Disney’s iconic 80-year-old film and family classic through three core sneaker styles to celebrate the film’s anniversary.


Snow White gets her own design, with Disney and ASICSTIGER applying copious amounts of references and details onto the GEL-Lyte “Snow White” sneaker available for women. There’s the red bow and velvet overlays that reference Snow White’s cape while the sock-liner gets an apple print, nodding to, of course, the poisoned apple the Wicked Queen uses to carry out her evil plans.


Speaking of which, if you tend to root for the darker side in these sort of things, ASICSTIGER and Disney have got you sorted with the “Wicked Queen” sneaker, also available in women’s sizes. With a colorway combo matching up to the infamous antagonist’s costume, with purple pop and gold glitter outsoles, and an extended tongue with distinguishing gold crown.



Of course, a drop like this wouldn’t be complete without the famed film’s namesake: the seven dwarfs. The ASICSTIGER’s GEL-Lyte GS with “The Seven Dwarfs” is the first GEL-Lyte for kids and has individual material combinations, fleece lining, black laces, and prints inspired by Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey and each of their bed frames and outfits colors.


This was my assignment for the traineeship I did for ASICS.
