I love the Onitsuka Tiger line, and the California 78's are very comfortable. I would recommend these over the Mexico 66 style, as that style doesn't have enough padding around the ankle. These are much better!

These shoes are super cute and really would work well with anything in my wardrobe. But the construction felt a little stiff (like cardboard) and didn't seem like it would wear in well. They were true to size, just not comfortable enough to justify keeping. Bummer.

Bought these shoes for a festival where I'd be doing a lot of walking and standing. Great look! Comfort is on point. Added a thin insert for added cushion. Overall good shoe.

Can't be too excited about these. I've had these in the past in suede/mesh uppers, and they were almost indestructible. However, the "black/birch" model with the canvas and leather uppers were worn for maybe a week before the rubber on the bend of the foot began to separate from the leather toe. What made it a bit more infuriating was the higher price of that model. A higher premium on a price should ensure a higher quality of construction than this. So I essentially paid a lot for an inferior version of a product that I'm normally pretty supportive of. The upside? They look(ed) pretty amazing and are remarkably comfortable before the sole decided to separate from the leather after a week of regular, day-to-day activities.

Very good looking urban sneaker. Comes with an extra pair of coordinating laces (cool!). They do come up pretty high in the back, so choose your sock carefully.

I love the shoes. They look nice and are super comfy. I have a long narrow flat foot and wear orthotics. They fit the orthotics but run a little narrow in the toe. The only problem with them is the front toe kick thing started to come unglued after a week, and they make my feet hot.

I absolutely love the classic, vintage style of Asics sneakers. I have bought about 6-8 pairs of the Ultimate 81's in the last 3 years and have always fit perfectly. These, however, fit terribly. They are extremely narrow and tight all around the front of my foot. I bought a size 13, the same size I buy with the Ultimate 81's and these just aren't even close. Darn shame because they are some stylish, good looking shoes.

I've been waiting for an all red Tiger since the Ultimate 81's came out in 2009. That pair wore out. These are slightly different, but I am really liking the fit. I wear a 9 in most Nike Free's, but an 8.5 in most other shoes, and the 8.5 fits perfectly. It has the low profile of the Mexico 66 without that annoying flap on the back. I love them. Not much support, but that's to be expected. Also accommodating to bunions!

Well it goes without saying that the shoes are super cute! I love the color and the dots! The shoe is comfortable for everyday wear. It's not an exercise shoe, but comfy for shopping and doing daily activities. I wear a size 8 in running shoes and bought an 8 and it was too big. I returned and the 7.5 fit great! That is my normal size other than running shoes. Zappos is excellent for shipping and returns! Love their quick delivery!

Stylish shoe but extremely uncomfortable. Over time this shoe just got more and more painful to wear. Which is surprising because I only ever hear about how comfortable they are. I finally just recently ripped out the current arch support and put in my own, hopefully that will make them more tolerable.

These are wonderful! I'm usually an Adidas originals fan but I haven't had much luck with them lately because the sizing has felt inconsistent. The Onitsuka Tiger felt like they were made for my feet. I especially like how the back part with the Tiger logo comes up higher and protects my thin skin on that area from blisters. I've never had a white sneaker but the white/black/red ones were just too cute to resist. I have a feeling these will be the 1st of many Tigers I buy. And as always, Zappos rocks!

Contrary to the most popular review here, you CAN lace these shoes, you just have to bar lace them. They actually look amazing Bar laced and fit a little more snug. I knotted the laces underneath the tongue and they still work as slip ons.

Although my first experience with Onitsuka's Ultimate 81 left me wanting a more complete shoe (however great they looked), the Ult-Racer gives me everything in comfort I couldn't find in the other model. Granted, this is only my second pair of Onitsuka's but they've become a favorite. With minimum sole, this pair still provides the sufficient amount of support. I wear them for work and stand for up to ten hours. Holds up nicely with little fatigue. I see myself buying another pair of these Ult-Racers.

These are pretty comfortable. I usually don't wear sneakers at all but, these are fabulous. Color was exactly what it shows (grey/white/teal). The flap in the front is actually connected to the shoe so sometimes it's hard to get your foot inside but once it stretches out, I am sure it will be fine. I am usually a size 7.5 in sandals and other shoes but I went a half size up to an 8 for these shoes and they are snug but movable. Definitely recommend this buy. Price is pretty decent for the quality. Good walking around shoe. Have not tried long walks or hikes in it but a great every day sneaker if needed.

These have become my favorite go-to sneakers they go wit work out clothes, jeans and t-shirt, and even make a dress outfit look more casual and comfy. I usually have to wear orthotic inserts for mainly arch support but the insole in the shoe seems to be enough and my feet don't feel tired at all after a full-day's work on my feet. Very comfortable and they look great. The tail is a bit long and rubs at first but it molds fine to my ankle/achilles tendon after a couple of wears.

Love these. I can't wear Nike (fit never seems right). I normally wear a size 10, 10.5 in some brands. However, I ordered a 10 since reviews showed true to size and I was glad I did. Fits great. Would definitely order another pair if I had the chance.

I love the look and comfort of these shoes. I have two pairs of Tigers. However, the materials that make up the outside of the shoe are too thin and don't last very long. My toe has worn through the top of both pairs in less than a years time of moderate wear. I am disappointed and think they should thicken this area. I'm surprised this hasn't happened to more people.

My husband wore these on vacation and walked in them quite a bit over 4 days. By the end of the trip the sneakers look like they've been worn for a couple years. They aren't dirty, they just look worn out. They are not holding up very well at all.

I've bought roughly 5 pairs now. I love this shoe. They work great for walking, running, hiking or just being around town. The build quality is excellent. As is the styling and longevity of the shoes. Not the best if it's really wet out however (rain hiking/running). But I live in the PNW and I wear them out all the time!
