Cologne-based retailer The Good Will Out have teamed up with Onitsuka Tiger on a special limited edition of the 1980s running model X-Caliber sneaker. Aptly titled “Silver Knight,” the name is a play on Excalibur, King Arthur’s magical sword. Inspired by TGWO’s stoney grey, forest green and burgundy storefront, a full 3M upper is covered with grey mesh, designed to shine like a knight’s armor. Green Onitsuka Tiger stripes feature on the outer side while the inner stripes are fitted out in silver 3M. Other features include a suede padded tongue, single burgundy eyelets at the top of each shoe, debossed TGWO logo on the lateral side, and red debossed Onitsuka Tiger on the back. The left shoe comes with a green sockliner with TGWO logo while the right features burgundy with an Onitsuka Tiger logo. The collaboration sneaker comes with three sets of laces in green, burgundy and white 3M, with TGWO written on the tips.
“Silver Knight” will retail for €120 and will be available at The Good Will Out in Cologne from December 7, and globally on December 14.
