Next May, the beginning of a lengthy collaboration between tokidoki and Onitsuka Tiger will give fans of both companies something to blog about. A blend of Italian artist Simone Legno’s modern characters and Onitsuka Tiger’s popular footwear, the two year-long collaboration will result in a steady stream of tokidoki love (that’s already been flying around like the herp, but we’re not gonna stop it) and will help both companies further spread the gospel of modern Japanese art. As far as I can tell, this will be the first athletic shoe collab for tokidoki (though they did some good work with Italy’s Fornarina earlier this year), so high fives to both companies for locking down something so rockin’. News of this pairing should be flying all over the internets in no time at all, but we recommend keeping your eyes here for the most up to date info.
