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.

It seem the Onitsuka line needs to carry separate reviews for the different variations. A major flaw of The Mexico 66 is its complete lack of traction on a wet smooth surface. The micro diamond tread (unique to this model) is very ineffective in this regard. In addition the sole does not offer much padding and feels thin. Needless to say I was quite shocked at my negative experience of these shoes in the face of almost universal acclaim of the Onitsuka Tiger. This, I think, is due to the reviews for all models being lumped together because the Mexico 66 is certainly no 5 star shoe.

I love these shoes. I usually wear a women's 8.5, and these fit me perfectly. This is my second pair of Mexico 66; I have a bright blue pair, too. I wear them for everyday use and also wear them for martial arts practice; they are flat and low so my feet can feel the ground; the only drawback for martial arts practice is that these are narrow on the bottom so you have to work to keep your soles flat on the ground. I prefer my rainhas or feiyues for real practice, but these are fine and look stylish!

I'd also recommend: Feiyue, Rainha

Great vintage style! Leather is super soft, really comfortable shoes. They are unisex - I usually wear a 7½ and my husband got me a 6 that fits really well. The one thing that prevents me from giving this fives is this little blue flap thing at the heel - it is not sewn down so tends to flip up - that is kind of weird. It seems like it should either not be there, or be sewn so it does not move. But that is not a deal-breaker for me.

These sneakers are very light and comfy. I wear them with no-show socks and I haven't had any blisters, which is a common problem for me with other shoes. They look cute and stylish, especially with rolled up boyfriend jeans and a chic blazer. My only complaint is that the tab on the back keeps sticking out instead of neatly folding over the back of the shoe. I tried to fix the issue by using clothes pins at night to keep the tabs down, but they stick right out when I take the pins off. I will need to glue them, which worries me because I don't know what type of glue I should use on leather.

I truly do not think a more comfortable shoe than this exists. I took a chance on the size because men's sizes translate to women's differently for each brand...and they fit perfectly (for example, I bought a size 6 in men's, which they say is a 7 & 1/2 in women's...in Adidas women's I wear an 8 and in most dress shoes I wear a 9). I love the bright yellow color, the soft leather and the low profile design. And as I said, the comfort level of this shoe is unreal. They don't offer much in the way of support, but for casual wear hey can't be beat.

I love these sneakers! It's getting hard to get leather sneakers anymore and these are quality leather. I wanted flexible soles for driving but enough support for walking and these are exactly what I was hoping for. Very comfortable, almost slipper-like comfort. I have a wide foot and these fit well. Also very light. I will be ordering more in other colours soon. Very pleased with the product! :)
