ASICS Tiger Tanabata Pack

The ASICS TIGER TANABATA PACK is inspired by the Japanese legend of forbidden love, Tanabata, to celebrate the Festival of Stars on 7th July.

Tanabata is celebrated to commemorate the romantic story of two lovers represented by the stars Vega and Altair, who are only permitted to meet each other once a year as long as the skies are clear. This is celebrated on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month. With this in mind, the 7th of July has become a day where people across Japan celebrate Tanabata, also know as the Festival of Stars, by writing down their one wish on colourful pieces of paper, known as tanzaku, and hanging them on bamboo in the hope that their wish will come true.

This year, ASICS Tiger will be celebrating Tanabata with the release of the Tanabata Pack, which consists of a GEL-KAYANO TRAINER and GEL-RESPECTOR. The first comes with a predominantly Antique Moss upper, constructed from a blend of suede and hairy suede, with a small hit of Duffelbag at the heel and a Light Olive midsole and outsole. The GEL-RESPECTOR switches things around, with Duffel Bag covering the majority of the textured and smooth leather upper with a small Antique Moss suede accent at the heel. For a slightly lighter finish, the midsole and outsole are finished in Sand. Both pairs feature special custom insoles, with the word Tanabata written in Japanese in the GEL-KAYANO TRAINER and a stylised image of a traditional streamer in the GEL-RESPECTOR.

The ASICS TIGER TANABATA PACK will be available on THURSDAY 7 JULY: keep checking back for the latest information. In the meantime, you can check the latest ASICS selection at END. by clicking the banner below.
