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 have been buying this exact pair of shoes over and over again for years. They are comfortable and suit me perfectly. If they stop making these shoes, I do not know what I will do. If you buy these shoes, beware. You will continue to purchase them forever.

I bought these for a trip to London and walked miles each day in comfort. I broke them in beforehand but I don't think I needed to, they were comfortable pretty much right away. (I did use thin, cheap inserts from the start, so I can't say how the shoes would've felt without that.) I bought the birch/Indian ink/latte and I liked that since it wasn't stark white, dirt and scuffs were easily masked and even after lots of city walking they didn't look filthy. I usually wear a size 8 in sneakers but even with the inserts I needed a 7.5.

I bought these for Tai Chi. I have a very narrow foot and need tie shoes rather than the usual slip-ons. The "floor feel" of these, as opposed to athletic shoes for walking is immediately apparent. The toe area is a little too wide for me, so I need to wear thicker socks than usual. These came within two days.

After owning many Converse and Jacks I wanted something different. With size 13 AA feet the task was very difficult. I found the Tigers and I knew Asics typically ran narrow so I tried them. The shoes fit like a glove. They are very lite and there's a lots of arch but little "comfort" so I added gel insoles. The heel tab has a tendency to flip up so I place some small hook and loop adhesive dots to keep them in place. There wasn't much break-in needed but you want to wear them a week or two if plan on doing some heavy walking. I like the toe design and should wear very well and not split or crack.

They are casual and perfect. They are softer inside than I even imagined them being! I'm thrilled that I bought them. They are true to size. I wear 9.5 and the 9.5 size was perfect. Customer service was amazing! Next day shipping had them to my house before my trip! Thanks, Zappos. I'm a huge fan!
