The CALIFORNIA 78 EX model is Onitsuka Tiger’s first collaborative effort with cycling apparel and casual wear brand narifuri and was designed for cycling performance. The upper is made of extremely durable high-density material CORDURA, used in many narifuri apparel items. The toe and heel portions are made of embossed natural leather.
Reflectors on the tongue and heel improve wearer visibility in the dark. Three types of shoelace are available: rope lace, rubber strap, and reflector. Narifuri added a shoelace belt along the ankle collar for use with the rubber strap to prevent catching in the bicycle chain.
The highly-durable hard E.V.A. is affixed to the center front portion of the sole for optimal pedaling grip.
The CALIFORNIA 78 EX is available in two colors, Black and Navy. The colors remain true to the narifuri taste; while simple, both hues are adorned with a casual camouflage motif on the toe and heel. The insole features a dot camouflage print. The CALIFORNIA 78 EX is retailing at SGD189 and available exclusively at Onitsuka Tiger Suntec City.
Along with the launch, Onitsuka Tiger will also offer bags made with the same upper material in the same color/camouflage print schemes as the CALIFORNIA 78 EX.

narifuri is a fashion brand whose products are built to withstand the impact that cycling has on your shoes, while also allowing you to blend in when wearing them around town. The name narifuri comes from the combination of the Japanese words “nari,” which means appearance, and “furi,” which means behavior. So, in other words, when you wear narifuri, you’re upgrading your entire look.

Her debut collection is bold, fun and 100 percent Miley.
“No age, no gender, no sex — I wanted everyone to feel included.”
When it comes to her debut collection Converse X Miley Cyrus, this is exactly how Miley Cyrus wants her fans to feel. A true reflection of her personal style and influences, Miley tapped into her persona as a performer as well as her day-to-day style to create footwear and apparel that anyone can wear at any time—a complete lifestyle collection.
As a woman that has always been open to all possibilities, Miley partnered with Converse to reflect that feeling of self-empowerment. The result is a collection that allows each wearer to be exactly who they want to be every single day.
“Converse has no boundaries,” she said. “It’s outspoken. I’ve always identified with Converse because the brand appeals and represents so many different cultures and walks of life. And, they’re accessible.”
After months of anticipation and sneak peaks, Miley set the stage for the collection by inviting some of her biggest fans across genders, orientations and backgrounds to join her in the collection’s lookbook. Shot by legendary fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, the images capture the energetic, bold and inclusive nature of Miley.
“I definitely had my fans in mind and in my heart when I was creating,” she said. “I put what they love about me and what I love about them into the design.”
Whether sparkling with the Chuck Taylor All Star “Glitter” or looking to channel Miley’s performance and country roots in the “Bandana,” individuals can piece together looks from the 26-piece collection for any mood or style.
