I love these shoes! I have a gray pair similar to these that I ordered from Zappos, and they run a bit too narrow for my foot. These are perfect. I am used to wearing running shoes to work, and I bought these to wear on the weekend for casual because I figured they did not have any support. Wrong! Not only are they supportive, they are very comfortable. I can wear them all day at work without foot fatigue. They are too low profile for my orthotic inserts, but I don't need them with these shoes. They look really nice and retro, and the heel wraps up the back, which is good for driving to keep the back of the shoe from getting marked as they usually do. So I now have two pairs of these Onisuka Tigers and I would highly recommend them to everyone!

Bought this as our "couples shoes". 1 for me and 1 for hubby. It has a good support specially for my husband's flat feet =) We use it for walking or running errands and so far it has not disappoint. I think I already got almost 10 wears on this shoes since I bought it. Hubby wears them less since he said he does not want to wear them out fast LOL Very fancy looking. Yet still simple. Love this shoes. Easy to wear. Try it! You will not be sorry.

I ordered this model for its retro style. Slightly smaller than my normal size 10, I found a 10-½ to be a better fit. Very happy with the feel of this shoe. I think they'd benefit from a light colored lace, the black-on-black lacing hides some of the athletic appeal.
