I Love Ugly x Onitsuka Tiger Colorado 85 "North & South Pack"

by Henrik Buzzi


The North Pack takes inspiration from the North Island’s unique characteristics. The grey accents, and red speckle and stitching used on the heel visually reference the vibrancy of the active volcanoes and rugged, wild coastlines. The North Island, the world’s 14th largest island, consists of wild terrain, majestic evergreen native forests, active volcanic thermal areas, rugged west coast beaches and island sanctuaries immersed within sprawling landscapes.

The South Pack is inspired by the South Island’s captivating wild beauty. The green speckle and stitching represent the theatrical green landscapes across vast open farmlands. The black leather is inspired by the daring glacial valleys and towering Southern Alp mountains, making it one of the most visually stunning places in the world. The South Island, the world’s 12th largest island, consists of dramatic and dense green scenic views and its famous Southern Alps. There are more than 18 alpine peaks that surpass 3000 metres (9800 feet). The Colorado Eighty-Five Mt Samsara stays close to the technical roots of the original Colorado launched in 1985 by offering comfort and flexibility with the flex canals as well as the extended lateral tread at the forefoot. ach shoe comes wrapped in high metallic survival blanket and with a limited edition collaboration publication.
