Established in 1996 under the name WTAPS, the Japanese company started under the wings of Senesei or CEO Testsu Nishiyama aka 'Tet'. What? Does this all sound too 'Japanese' for you? Then wait and see, because it gets even better! But back to WTAPS, which is pronounced as follows - 'double taps' - yes the Japanese people have taken the 'W' from the English language and only pronounce 'double' without the 'you'. In combination with TABS this results in 'double tabs'.

Okay, I think we've strayed away from the main topic. WTAPS mainly produces clothing but also accessories with 'army style'. So WTAPS is actually the perfect partner for the 'のコラボ' / collaboration with New Balance or not? Army print style meets US sneaker company!
