Following its inception in the late 1940s, Japan’s Onitsuka Tiger quickly made huge strides in the development of sneaker technology and design.
Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman (later to form Nike) helped Onitsuka design the Corsair, which would be re-designed further to become the Cortez, an early Nike classic.
The Corsair’s striking design features the iconic curvaceous tiger ‘stripes’ weaving along the sides. These were actually first introduced with the also-classic Tiger ‘Mexico’, the stripes as much a metaphor for speed, movement and power, as a means of providing additional foot support for the wearer.
