Editor’s Notes: The YMC x ASICS Tarther OG takes inspiration from rave culture and the resulting harmony between people of diverse backgrounds enjoying music together. The Tarther OG was originally released in 1983 and was often seen on the feet of ravers in the UK in the late ’80s. Now it makes its return with beaded leather laces, a wild pattern on the canvas upper, and co-branded detailing throughout.
The sneaker was released via YMC stores on April 5, with a wider release going down on April 11.
