TEASER: hanon shop x Onitsuka Tiger x Asics – “Glover Pack”

The collaborations are coming thick and fast, the last two years have felt like a bit of a collab conveyor belt in all honesty, and with countless pairs dropping each month, it gets a bit hard to keep up. Anyway, 11 months on from hanon shop’s last work with Onitsuka Tiger, they’re back again, but this time with a joint collaboration between themselves, Onitsuka Tiger and Asics.

Just this week, the first teaser images were released, along with a teaser video, which doesn’t exactly follow the usual script, and is enough to make anyone feel like they’re on a weird trip. It’s genius. Check them out below.

So what can we take from the video and the images?

First off, the name of the pack – “Glover Pack” – paying homage to Thomas Blake Glover, a man who’s name may not mean much to you, but he hails from Aberdeen and was a bit of a phenomenon in Japan. (when the full images release, I’ll focus more on the man himself, for a bit of background).

Well, there’s two shoes to start with, with the Onitsuka Tiger looking like another Colorado 85, partnered up with an Asics Gel Epirus. Not exactly everyone’s favourite models, but you’ve got to make the most of what you’re given!

Stepping away from the models, and onto the colourways; the thistle and the moustache seem to play a key part in the video, so we can expect the colourways of the shoes to somehow reflect this.

Keep an eye out for the full images to be released early next week, and as always, I’ll have all the details on my blog.
