...versus Asics Onitsuka Tigers at El Kartel on Robson Street, Vancouver:

El Kartel - Vancouver

Asics Onitsuka Tigers

Tough choice. I swear by Onitsukas, but those Reeboks put up a good fight.

The Reeboks win hands down! I can't understand why you're so hung up on Tigers. I like a lot of the fits you shoot, but such an emphasis on Tigers! There are so many better sneakers out there. It almost makes me think you work for Asics or something.

Hey Kevin - It's a good question. I just have an abiding love for Asics; I've never met an Onitsuka owner I didn't like. But don't get me wrong, I've got plenty of appreciation for any good, interesting pair of sneaks.

Onitsukas! But both these girls are so freaking styling. Seattle Asian girls are seriously geniuses.

can i just say that the reeboks pass up by the asics by a huge divide!??? Asics have been around for so long, and are so boring because everyone is wearing them! No creativity or chance taken there to put on a pair. Anyway..just my opinion!

Hi anon. - I can definitely see your point about Onitsukas not being "risky." I'm all for original fashion, but I think that few trainer-type shoes sew up an outfit as well as they do. And to be fair, the pair that this particular girl are sporting are rare & pretty darn hard to pull off right.
