I had high hopes for these, as had a white leather pair (purchased in Germany five years ago) that were pretty comfortable. I ordered the wine color, hoping that they would be a cool canvas shoe (the leather ones are too hot to wear in summer). Was seriously disappointed: not only was the wine color unattractive in person, but the shoes were stiff and uncomfortable too. I am returning them. This is a cheap-feeling shoe for the price.

LOVE these shoes, they are my go-tos for casual everyday sneakers that look cute but in a pinch I can wear to work out in. Good support for as lightweight as they are. I have big feet and these make my feet look smaller. They're great!

I loved this shoe right out of the box. It. Is extremely comfortable and fits accurately to size. I purchased the shoe with the mesh which seems to make a difference per prior reviews. The only drawback I can see is that the sole is relatively thin which may result in wearing out early. Time will tell.

I've always loved the style of this shoe. But even more I like the sleakness. It "looks" light and fast. Fitness has always been great.

I rarely wear anything but the Tiger Ultimate 81. They are comfortable to walk in all day, have a smaller profile than a traditional sneaker, and come in great colors. But be warned, some of the shoes are made of different materials. I ordered the Ultimate 81s in both grey and red; the red pair are wider (and way more comfortable) right out of the box compared to the grey pair. The mesh on the top is different, which may have something to do with it. I have relatively small (size 6), wide feet, with very high arches, so wide for me is better, but the grey pair are breaking in nicely. These shoes match up to my generally hard-to-fit feet. I am an avid runner, and Asics has always been my shoe of choice. With the hip and knee injuries I have obtained from said running delights, these shoes are what saves me on my long walks / running around at work. They offer great support and great cushion without all the bulk. Low profile is key. I travel a lot and nothing screams out "I am a North American tourist" like big sneakers. So, although I am sure he is comfortable, having a shoe- pant combo like Jerry Seinfeld is not really appealing to me. Overall, a well made, comfortable and great looking shoe. And Zappos is the only place I can have all the color options I like!

Bought these in black to replace my Onitsuka Tai Chi's and love this version so much more. There's a little padding in the heel which makes walking in these super comfortable but doesn't fight against the mechanics of your foot the way so many shoes do. They're really easy to slip on, they're snug when they're on, not too loose. Only tiny complaint is the heel tag (which is handy to use in pulling the shoe on), sometimes get flipped into the up position so it looks a little goofy if your heel tabs are up. This is a rare occurrence and seriously the only thing I can come up with that isn't awesome about these shoes. I suppose you could cut them off but I really like how they look with the "Onitsuka" branding on them. I'm a solid size 8 in womens and these fit perfectly.

So small. I buy Onitsuka Tiger shoes almost exclusively. I wear a 10.5 US. I ordered a 10.5 and they are at least a full size too small. I bought the exact same shoe in a different color with no problems. How is this shoe manufactured a full size too small?! So frustrating. Makes me regret shopping online.

These claim to be Vegan friendly. They provide the best arch support that I have found in vegan friendly shoes. The tread is excellent in the rain on my slippery steps. I just wish these were not sneakers.

A fine shoe, comfortable and fits well. My foot feels well-supported. One drawback: I use Superfeet in my shoes and these work best with an insole that can be removed, which it cannot for this shoe.

Great shoes, great fit. Comfortable out of the box, not too loose, not too tight. Only complaint is that they make my feet smell, something that my other shoes do not.

Shoes fit well. Bought then to use walking in Europe. Not that comfortable for 5-6 miles a day, but fine for minimal walking. No support, thin soles, especially for cobblestones!

I've owned 5 pairs of Tigers and all are a 9.5 so I ordered 9.5 and my toes were Jammed up in the front JAMMED how can sizing be that far off. I love Tigers but come on.

I'm a big fan of Onitsuka Tigers and have been wearing them almost exclusively for years. The Colorado 85 in the "Black/White" color is stylistically one of my favorites. I was looking for a black sneaker, and the speckled fabric make these a lot more interesting and fashionable than others out there. I typically wear a size 12, but 11.5 in these fit perfectly. I've found in general that the Tigers with removable insoles tend to run larger. If you plan on using a custom insole with these as I did, I recommend sizing half a size down.

Pros: Good price. Look great. Durable. Lightweight. Cons: Uncomfortable due to very little cushioning or support a step above a canvas shoe. They don't breath at all and get incredibly stinky very quickly!

I am looking for a lightweight, but supportive athletic type shoe that I can wear when I travel. These have minimal arch support, but I would have kept them because they are very stylish and I like the black mesh. However, I am returning because the inside laces/grommets rub on the top of my toes and I'm pretty sure I'd have blisters in no time. Too bad.

The part of the sole that wraps around to the front/top has started to peel after only a few months, making the shoes look worn and cheap even though the rest of the construction has held up. Too bad, I really liked how these shoes look but too short a life to justify the price.

These run quite narrow, so if you even briefly consider your feet to be wide, skip this style altogether. I have size 5 feet w/ narrow ankles and thought these would be good in a 5 1/2 (I always go up 1/2 or 1 full size in sneakers because I wear thicker socks with them), but didn't factor in the bunion on my right foot. Also, I agree with one of the reviewers below when noting that they start looking grubby really quickly (unless you're meticulous about cleaning them -- weekly? Nightly?). On a side note, the soles aren't removable for those that wear orthotics and with the style, even going up a size wouldn't accommodate one. I'll try other Onitsuka Tiger styles, but wouldn't repurchase the Serrano.

I have been a fan of these shoes for many years. They are stylish and comfortable. I walk a lot in the city and I need to be comfortable, but hate to sacrifice style. These are perfect for that. The Ultimate 81 pair that I bought are plastic all over, so they keep my feet a little too warm in the summer. The mesh ones are better in that sense. I usually wear between an 8 and 8½. I have long toes and medium width feet. The 8½ fit perfectly.

These are great sneakers and my husband has two other pairs of these; however, he wanted the exclusive white/black ones and the suede was actually BEIGE. He has an older pair of these in the white combo that he was wanting to replace and the suede on his dirty older pair was actually whiter than the ones that were just shipped. The suede is supposed to be an off white as, of course, it will never be the super bright white as the rest of the shoe, but the suede accents were no where near the color white and they were distinctly beige and much darker than what is shown in the picture.

Fashionably, these are great. However, they aren't the most comfortable. I wouldn't want to do a ton of walking or standing in them.

These are one of the lightest, flexible, supportive, and comfortable pair of shoes I have purchased in year. They have a durable feel that doesn't have the bulk that durability normally brings.
