These sneakers are just what I was looking for. They are comfortable for work and look cool for casual outings. I have thin feet and they fit perfectly. Great classic design. I'll probably get a second pair in a different color.

So this is my first pair of Onitsuka Tigers by Asics. I am usually a classic Vans guy but I wanted to try something new. I got the size 12 (my size) and was happy with the comfort and style of the shoe. But the 12 felt just half size too big. So I ordered the 11½ and got them in the mail today. They are the perfect shoes. I am hooked. Asics for life!

This shoe is a fairly obvious homage to Bruce Lee and his final film "A Game of Death", although people remember the tracksuit more (esp. with the Bride from KB wearing it as well). However, if you look carefully at image stills of the fight between Bruce and Kareem Abdul Jabbar, you ll notice that Bruce wears a matching pair of Onitsuka Tiger shoes, most likely the Mexico 66s. And indeed, OT did remake yellow and black Mexico 66s at some point. But when they decided to make a pair of shoes called Tai Chi well they obviously had to make them in yellow and black. I prefer these to the Mexico 66. While externally similar in profile to the 66, the inside is much more padded, and thus the shoes are a joy to wear, similar to slightly chunkier sneakers, like their X-Caliburs. The only thing that s left to note is that Onitsuka Tiger is ASICS fashion sneaker brand (with OT being the name of what would later evolve into ASICS) and so these shoes aren t really for anything athletic, even if they do have athletic sounding names (Cycling, Tai Chi, etc). And as a result, I'd say that their arch support isn t very pronounced. But these aren t orthotics. They re for looking good in and channeling the dragon.

Great shoe. However, the sizing chart is a little off. I ordered an 8, and was skeptical of doing such because i usually wear a 7.5 The 8 was too big.

Great shoes that really hold up well. My last pair of 81s were bought in 2009 and are in excellent shape other than a worn out sole. These new shoes appear to be of similar quality and comfort. They may have changed their sizing slightly; I had to buy a half size larger than the old pair.

A bit more substantial than other Tiger shows with the same great look and comfort. This isn't my first pair.

I was looking for a more minimalist shoe that I can use for my daily errands and this works well. It has about a 17 mm rise at the heel. It's a nice casual shoe, good style (goes well with most clothes), a good change from wearing running shoes around town and looking like a bum. I find that the heel is not super cushiony when I walk, but that may just be my form (I'm still working on correcting my form so that I don't heel-strike too much). I've had these shoes for about 2 months as of writing this.

Very stylish sneaker- colors are always true with Asics Onitsukas. My only issue with this particular model is that the toe box is narrower than, say the Ultimate 81. Specifically, the outer portion of the toe box is less roomy, making for a pointy shoe type feel. This is uncomfortable for me as I need the room in the toe box, but those with narrow feet or without foot problems (especially toe issues) may not mind.

Great looking shoe. unfortunately for me they felt a little to narrow so I'm going to have to send them back. But if you feel like your foot is a little on the narrow side then I'm sure you'll like them.

This was my first pair of Onitsuka Tiger by Asics athletic shoes. My daughter has a couple of pairs of the Mexico 66 style and considers them some of the most comfortable shoes she owns. There wasn't a lot of color choice in my size (W 7.5) in stock, so I went with the red/gray fabric Mexico 66. The pair arrived quickly, I liked the way they looked much more than I thought that I would. They were very lightweight and comfortable EXCEPT in the heel, each of which had prominent areas and stitching that rubbed against my heels, especially on the left; within a few hours, both were red and sore. I was disappointed that I would have to return them because of this, because in every other way I was pleased. When we checked my daughters shoes, she confirmed that hers, which are leather and not fabric like mine, do not have a seam or prominence in the heel area. I'm returning these and ordering another pair of Mexico 66 in the leather.

If you need arch support this is the shoe for you. Fits true to size. Super comfy, you will not be dissapointed. Buy them!

These shoes fit like a glove. Like, imaging putting a foot-shaped fleece glove on your foot - grips everywhere, ground feels natural, and yet the padding is a thing of beauty. They look great, feel great, and seem very well made. Love them!

These shoes are beautiful. Having not owned a pair of tigers before, I wasn't sure what to expect. The fit reminds me of Puma, but a little wider. They are supremely comfortable and I feel like I could walk forever in them. And looks wise they're pretty slick!

I needed a shoe I felt comfortable wearing to work and other professional environments both in appearance and for utility/comfort. This shoe met both of my standards, I would recommend it.

This is my 5th pair of Tigers over the last 6 years. I love them. Comfortable (especially arch support), durable, and they look great. I wear these things out over a few years of over-use.

Bought for my husband for casual wear. He likes them and says they're comfortable. He wears them out and about. Just a note: ordered the "light grey/captain blue" and in the photo the base color (not the trim) is a very light grey but the actual color when we received them is a darker medium grey. Liked the color in the photo better but it's not a big deal.

These are fine shoes, but they don't breathe very well. By the end of the day, my feet are sweatier than other shoes that I have owned. I am actually being forced to consider odor eaters or something.

I wear retro runners for weekend/casual use and these are the best I've found so far. I underpronate and ruin Saucony Jazz's or New Balance 574's in short order but these hold up very well. The midsole is much more securely connected to the upper than in similar shoes so they feel a lot more stable even if they are a bit taller. Pretty true to size but maybe slightly narrow (fine for me but your mileage may vary). A+ would buy again.

I loved it. Normally I'm hard pressed to trust a brand I've not been living in but this shoe has given me life. Not only is it stylish but its comfortable as well. Well worth the cash and am already eying another pair.

For Tai Chi practice, a flat sole, zero lift, lightweight and flexible lace up shoe or slipper works best. This high quality leather shoe meets all the criteria and more. They're comfortable, true to size, and thinly soled so your toes can feel the surface. Works well with or w/o socks. For good reason, this shoe can be hard to find because they sell out fast.
