A new season of Onitsuka Tiger trainers has, as ever, plundered a few styles from the archives – including the Onitsuka Tiger Saiko Runner.

Saiko actually means ‘ultimate’ in Japanese – and these were the ultimate running shoes in Japan in the late 70s. Back now as a leisure shoe, they have a fairly thick mid sole for cushioning your stride, a profiled outsole for better grip and bright/neon colourways – typified by the ones above.

New for spring/summer, expect them to retail for around £55.
