Now known as the popular running brand Asics, Onitsuka originated as a basketball footwear company and eventually branched out into other sports. This model, the Onitsuka Tiger Tai Chi LE, is perhaps best known for being worn by Uma Thurman in 2003's Kill Bill. Designed specifically for Tai Chi, the model is suitable for a range of martial arts and even doubles as a barefoot runner. With a simple leather upper construction, classic Asics branding, and a cushioned footbed atop a durable rubber outsole, this classic look is equally versatile. You can pick the Onitsuka Tiger Tai Chi LE up today for $85 from CSS.
