Japanese sport lifestyle brand Onitsuka Tiger and long-time friend TGWO have collaborated to create an exclusive TGWO shoe called the SILVER KNIGHT. It is a limited edition of the 1980s running model X-CALIBER. The name plays with the word Excalibur, King Arthur’s magical sword.
The comfortable but street-savvy sneaker has a unique design that honours the stone grey, forest green and burgundy of the TGWO antique storefront. The collaboration between TGWO and Onitsuka Tiger, two authentic sneaker icons, proves that passion and dedication pay off.
As the owners believe, “the good” will always prevail in the end.
The TGWO sneaker has a complete 3M upper with structured mesh that shines like a knight’s chain armour.
Green stripes sweep over the lateral side, while silver 3M tiger stripes blaze from the medial side.
A debossed TGWO logo on the lateral side is matched with a red debossed Onitsuka Tiger logo on the back.
A final unique feature is one burgundy metal eyelet on each shoe.
This exquisite X-CALIBER has a suede-padded tongue and comes with three sets of laces in green, burgundy and white 3M. All laces have TGWO written on the tips.
The left foot steps into a green sockliner with a TGWO logo, whereas the right foot gets a red sockliner with an Onitsuka Tiger logo.
Onitsuka Tiger was established in Japan in 1949 and has since created footwear and clothing inspired by Japanese values of craftsmanship and attention to detail. With heritage built into the design of each product, along with added modernity, the brand offers a wide range of styles for those who value their individuality. Onitsuka Tiger creates products for people who demand something above and beyond mainstream sports brands.
