END. x Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 ‘Bluebird’ – Launching 5th March

February 26th, 2015

2015-02-26-Bluebird_Off_Foot_minimal_XXXX

For our bespoke make-up of the Colorado 85, we looked to the namesake state of this classic Onitsuka Tiger silhouette. An area packed with fascinating wildlife, Colorado is home to three species of bluebirds, creatures whose striking blue hue is created via tiny pockets of air in their feathers that transform the light that hits them only letting blue light escape.

Inspired by this mind blowing evolutionary adaption, we utilised reflective 3M, one of the sneaker world’s best loved materials and one that equally places with light and perception, deploying highly reflective blue 3M panels across the signature form stripe, embossed heel panel and customised rope laces.

Opting for a full tonal make up with complimenting hues representing the various bluebirds of Colorado and perforated panels harking back to the silhouettes performance heritage, we finished things off with a single pristine white feather print at the heel.

To celebrate the release of our bluebird-inspired Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 we are hosting an exclusive launch party at our End Hunting Co. store on Thursday 5th March. From 6–9pm, you’ll get the chance to buy the END. X Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 ‘Bluebird’ in its limited edition presentation packaging ahead of the online release. At the same time, enjoy an ice cold Asahi and dim sum from our good friends at Nan Bei.

Carven Snowdrop Embroidered Sweat
A simple piece with a captivating motif which is typical of the brand, this accessible sweat from Parisian fashion house Carven works well on its own or under a sophisticated bomber jacket.

Dries Van Noten Hugar Flower Print Tee
A vibrant print that pepper’s the Belgian’s new season collection, Dries Van Noten’s Hugar Tee is a classic example of teaming high and low. We’ve teamed it up sturdy denim jacket but this crew neck will look equally as good in the summer with some considered sunglasses.
