I buy these Tigers because of the way they look. They are beyond cool, with their ultra low-profile design. They're sexy shoes with a definite European flair to them (though they are Japanese by design). You see these frequently around Paris on the feet of the younger generation. Even though I'm in my 40's they still look cool. You just can't find a cooler-looking, old-school style sneaker. I get compliments all the time. This, I may add, is my second pair, with 2 more on deck. Even my 14 year old son fell in love with them since nobody at his school wears them. So they have a certain "hard-to-find" cool factor that makes them more doable to many. Having said all that, they are not the most supportive shoe out there. In fact, they really are just for looks. You could run in them because they're so light, but they have zero arch support so it would be somewhat like running barefoot. The sole is flat and thin, of course. Still, they're like a feather and they look great. If you want serious running or walking shoes, these aren't them. But if you want some cool shoes, look no further.

I love the look of these shoes. But after buying 2 pairs, I can't recommend them because the suede toe gets instantly dirty and is impossible to clean. I think its a combination of the outside dirt, and sweat from my toes, but the tip of the suede is all dark, almost black. The first pair did this. so the 2nd pair, i made sure i put on suede protector. Then when they started discoloring, I tried suede cleaner and brushes, and it still looks crappy.

These shoes are a classic throwback to a simpler time. Sleek and well-made, they evoke the period of running's glory days. Though they don't feature today's high tech innovations of cushioning and support in running shoes technology, they are great for kicking around and dressing down. They go well with a track suit or jeans. I like to wear them when driving as well.

I have two pairs of these and one for casual wear, and one for running. As has been said, they don't have arch support. That's why I'm using them for running as a supplement to barefoot running and runs in my Vibrams. It takes some getting used to, but they're perfect for minimalist running if you're into that sort of thing.

Great, comfortable shoe! I usually wear Adidas Sambas, but the newer models are not quite as comfy as the older ones. This shoe is my new favorite.

I'd also recommend: Adidas Samba

Like these shoes need anymore reviews! After 2 years of ownership, I figured I'd finally document a review. I love these shoes. They've lasted comfortably for 2 years! They run as labeled length wise but are a bit narrow width wise. A great stylish, comfortable shoe every one should own.

I'd also recommend: New Balance, Asics
