Great looking shoe. Very comfortable. Good support. I work out in them and walk a lot in them. They do both well and look great while doing it.

Great shoes overall. They ran a bit small. 99% of my shoes are 9.5. I ordered these in 9.5 and they were a bit too tight. I had to return them and get 10. The 10s fit perfect.

Onitsuka Tigers are the most comfortable exercise show I have ever worn.To say that they mold themselves to your feet is an understatement. The thinner sole and fabric top are the answer to the above statement. No question that both of these factors shorten the life of the shoe, which I wear almost everyday. The only negatives are that the show tread makes the show more flexible, it also has some traction problems on ice or wet ground. The fit of the shoes I have found to be small so going one half size to one full size larger has been the norm for me. None of the shoes peculiarities present enough of an obstacle to not want more of them.

i really like the look of this shoe but since I need more cushioning and arch support it just wasn't the shoe for me.

I absolutely love these sneakers. These are my 3rd pair and I'll buy a 4th once these wear down. I get a lot of compliments on them and they are very comfortable.
