Just because a design looks good as a vinyl toy, vector art, or on a LeSportsac doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to translate well for sneakers too. Japanese-inspired, Italian designer Simone Legno demonstrated this principle effectively with these limited edition tokidoki sneakers for Onitsuka Tiger. Although big fans of the zany illustrations and characters, there’s something very infantile about importing these onto sneakers for grown people. Then again, if the so called tastemakers are coveting shit like this, maybe these are perfectly fitting for a streetwear world gone mad. |Sneakernews|
