I love Tigers, but these are not Tigers. These are Asics. They are very clunky and and not very comfortable. They look great, but feel terrible. I would return them if I could. Looks like I'm stuck wearing shoes that I don't like much. Save yourself the trouble and just buy a pair of Ultimate 81's.

Really cute shoe! I removed the insole and put my own orthotic inside. Otherwise not much arch support.I have plantar Fasciitis so I have to be careful. I don't wear these shoes all the time just in place of flats with leggings or skinny jeans. I likely would not wear these shoes if I were doing a ton of walking either. But they are light weight and fairly comfortable.

I have about 4 pair of these in different colors but this particular shoe's color has an annoying baby blue insert that isn't seen in the pictures. You won't like it if you're looking for a neutral colored shoe as I already have these in base Yellow, base Green, and base Grey/Black.

A good shoe for packed dirt/treadmill and I liked the strong arch support. But the sole is thin, vibram-like, making it unsuitable for paved surfaces unless you're already a fan of minimalist shoes. The top of the heels dug into my feet, creating hot spots and reason to send this product back.

My son keeps coming back to this shoe. He grew out of it an year (it still had plenty of wear left). He likes that they are vegan, comfortable, outside of the norm of the kicks-obsessed middle school culture, and great for every day and gym class. Only drawback the smell is really attractive to our puggle who destroyed one shoe, one week after purchasing. Zappos saved us though and sent us a new pair. So 5 Stars for shoes and 5+ for Zappos.

These are super comfortable and I love them for walking, however the light gray mesh area is very breathable making them not good shoes for wet or very cold weather.

So bummed. I've been searching forever for a cute everyday sneaker that is NOT an athletic shoe (running, walking, cross trainers, etc). I heard good things about Tiger, and I love the color options. I could barely get my foot in this shoe. I have Fred Flintstone wide flat feet and this is not the shoe for me. The length was ok, but there's no way I could wear this even if I had been able to lace them up. I need arch support and cushioning, guess I'm relegated to a running shoe. Running shoes imply you like to run, and I don't like presenting myself as a fakey fake liar! However, I love Zappos and got these shoes in 2 days. I'm a faithful customer, but I really need to try shoes on before ordering. I hate wasting all the cardboard and shipping overhead for nothing. But here's the rub, there's no cute shoes in the shoe stores! They are all running shoes! PS, these are NOT 5 star for comfort, it won't let me change the stars. I'll go back and check Keen, they are wider.

Love these shoes. Have ordered two pairs. Feel comfy. Minimalist retro feel. Great alternative to the SUV feel of modern shoes.

This is the most comfortable and fun shoe I've worn in a long time. I'm not running in them and yet I feel like I could...and fast! No major arch support, but better for walking than others I've tried. The fabric (vs. nylon or leather) is unique. I need a roomy toe box and a narrow heel, and this fits the bill. I usually wear a 9 or 9.5 and am wearing a 10 in the Tiger. Very happy with this purchase, and with Zappos, as always!

Best looking sneakers I have bought in a long time. Big fan. Comfort would be spot on, but I have flat feet and there is a slight raise in the arch area that took some getting used to. Otherwise these get 5 stars across the board.

I own a couple pairs of ultimate 81s and a pair of colorado 85s but these OC runners have been my go to pair as of late. I have these in an all grey with white tiger stripes which isn't offered on Zappos anymore. The footbed isn't removable, but the cushion is there. Comfortable with first wear, but I'm sure as you let them mold to your feet they'll feel as amazing as they look!

This is the second pair of serranos I have owned and they are my favorite of the Onitsuka Tigers. They are a lower profile shoe than the Ultimate 81s, meaning they may not give as much support but they feel comfortable, flexible, and I find them to be more aesthetically appealing. Arch support is lacking, but this is more a shoe for walking around the city than doing any serious physical challenge. I bought this pair in blue/green and although it is a men's color I find it to be slightly feminine so it is good for both genders. This is a great everyday tennis shoe. I only wish it had more color options, like the Ultimate 81s!

Great shoe, but comes with awful laces. Seems like I'm always tying my shoe, even if I double knot. If you don't double knot, forget it--you won't get 100 feet out the door before having to retie. Other than that, I love them. Very comfy and great for mid/forefoot running. Wish Zappos would get them in some regular colors (read: that don't make your feet look like My Little Ponies)!

These are the most uncomfortable athletic-style shoe I have ever worn. The soles are very firm (feel hard) and there is no padding or arch support. They are cute shoes but I will not buy again.

I love this shoe, but I think it may be discontinued. I use them for running (up to 16 miles; I've also run a half-marathon in TOMS). I've owned both versions, but prefer the newer one. Here's why: the older version had a perforated footbed which was strongly glued to the shoe and could not be removed. It tended to absorb moisture and degraded over time, slowly falling apart in small chunks. On the other hand, it was fairly thin and totally flat, unlike the new version with a foam footbed under which is hidden a substantial heel wedge which extends just past the arch, as I recall. Fortunately it's not glued securely enough to keep me from ripping it out, which I did. The top paper layer of the cardboard underneath tore off, but I don't care. They're now thin, light, and flat—exactly what I want. A few things could make this shoe better: -wider toe box/less narrow fit -a leather tongue -some sort of toe cap -velcro/slip-on instead of laces -more colors For what it's worth, I hate shoes. If I could, I'd be barefoot all the time. But, I like these, so that's saying something. ASICS, don't screw this up.

I've been a waitress for four years and have purchased four pairs of these shoes. They last a little over a year with heavy use before they start losing their comfort and looking scraggly. Obviously I've been happy with the product, which fits wonderfully and doesn't look like "waitress shoes" -- I can wear these with jeans pretty much anywhere. However, the price for the shoes has gone up gradually, and the quality from my first pair to my last has gone downhill. I used to be able to wear these shoes for 12-14 hour work days and my feet didn't suffer one bit. Nowadays, I will wear them for six hours and have to change to a different style shoe (Tom's or Dansko) to finish out the day. I don't know if they changed the materials or what, but something definitely changed and this is the last pair I will own for work purposes. Currently exploring the world of Keen and Chaco for a solid work shoe.

This is my absolute favorite pair of shoes. I own about 12 pairs of them and this one color combination (white with red and black trim is my favorite, I am on my fourth set). I have wider feet and normal heels. Pumas do not fit me not do a most others which is why I keep going back to the Asics ultimate 81 style. Believe it or not they wash really well. I just throw them in the wash with a little spray and wash beforehand and they look new again. I travel for work most of the year and they are light and pack well. These are just casual and comfortable street shoes. There is not much cushioning or arch support so do not plan on running on a tread mill with them. Not all casual Asics fit the same, the Ultimate 81 just works for me.

Fashion shoe only. After I tried them I realized that besides being too tight and uncomfortable they will not work for work-out shoes. They are made of some stiff fabric which feels sort of like paper. They look pretty, but get them if you need to look cute.
