Onitsuka Tiger is finally releasing its first ever video game themed product, and it is a collaboration with the classic arcade fighting game that we all know and love. That’s right, Onitsuka Tiger is collaborating with Capcom’s Street Fighter to bring you a Chun Li- inspired version that’s never been seen before – the new Mexico 66 SD.
The sneaker will be available in two colour options, in the trademark colours of the powerful female Street Fighter character, Chun Li. Only 5000 pairs will be released worldwide.
Here’s an added bonus. By purchasing this shoe, you will also get a secret code that allows you to change Chun Li’s outfit in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Yes, you will be wearing the same shoes as your in-game girlfriend.
The MEXICO 66 SD sneakers will be available on the 27 July at the Ngee Ann City Onitsuka Tiger boutique at Takashimaya Shopping Centre on 27 July. Don’t bother going onto the website to search for it, as the shoes will only be available at Onitsuka Tiger physical retail stores.
If mixed martial arts or combat sports are your things, this shoe might be the right fit for you. It seems that not only real-life fighters like Bruce Lee enjoy wearing Onitsuka Tigers, but fictional ones also love them.
Price: To be announced
