Originally released in 1976, the Lawnship was the pinnacle of Onitsuka’s tennis department. Featuring technologies such as optimum traction (a modified herringbone outsole) and anti-slip control, the shoe’s rounded toe allowed for greater lateral movement on returns and serves. Simple and effective. (The “progression” of shoes and their correlating modifications and cushioning interfaces is amazing, isn’t it?) Expect to see the Lawnship sometime early on in 2009 in four colorways: red/red/white, yellow/green/lime green, white/grey/navy, and black/pumpkin orange/white. Via Sneaker Freaker.
