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 have liked Mexico 66 since its early days. My first pair is from over 10 years ago and I still have them. I have been through several pairs and I decided to get a new pair recently. These Mexico 66s are a bit different than their standard model. First, they look great in back and tan and shiny leather. The upper is made entirely of leather, but they don't have interior padding inside, so that they actually feel a bit bigger than sized. I liked the past Mexico 66 because of their snugness, pliability and great fit, especially around toes. These are for some reason slightly different than standards and don't fit very well unless you wear some thicker socks. The leather is also stiffer so it appears that they will require some breaking-in before they fit better. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed especially given the premium price they command.

I own both the silver/silver & gold/gold Mecico 66 and they turn heads and get lots of compliments. Metallic never goes out of style and the silver matches just about everything. I did notice they were a touch roomier/wider than some other 66s but not enough to go up or down a size. Slightly thicker socks fit the bill (opposed to super thin running/fitness socks) Similar support with a different tread on the soles. I was waiting for metallic midrunners but these were too good to pass up.

Had to send these back. I purchased the DARK GREY/OFF WHITE color but the moment you take a step they're super squeaky. I have 3 pairs on Onitsuka Tigers already (including 1 pair of Mexico 66) so I'll definitely buy them again, unfortunately this one pair was terrible. So glad I bought these from Zappos, returns are easy.

Revisiting my youth with these, as I had a pair in high school in the 80's. It is funny then that the numerous compliments that I have received have come from 20-somethings not even yet born in 1984. They felt slightly larger than being true to size and I could have probably gone down a half size. However, since there seemed to be minimal arch support and cushioning, I added some new cushy and supportive inserts and they are perfect.

Like many other commenters note, these shoes don't have a whole lot to them. The soles are thin and they're overall very light.They feel good, mostly. I wear orthotics, and they make it a bit weird to wear the Mexicos, as I feel like my heels are going to pop out of the back. They don't, but there is more wear on the shoes because of it. There is a nice built-in arch, so I can wear these without inserts for a while as well. I can see some glue beaded around the sole at the bottom. A bit shoddy, but it takes inspection to find it. Otherwise, they look great! I'd recommend these for sure.

I received the shoes amazingly quick and was instantly satisfied. I have had several Asics in the past and these are everything you expect and more. These are not high tech running shoes but they have a great vintage look and feel. They go with everything from shorts to jeans or even suits if done right.

These are really great leather shoes. They are very flexible, which sets them apart from modern sneakers which are usually almost completely rigid for some bizarre reason. Unlike most modern sneakers, they do not make your feet look two inches bigger than they really are. The real leather means they stay fresh and they comply to your foot shape over time, becoming more and more comfortable. The downside is they don't have the shock absorbency or the arch support of modern athletic shoes, so what I do is buy a half size larger and insert a Pedag Vivo leather insole. This results in a super comfortable all-leather casual shoe that I can wear all day.

The perfect shoe with one fatal flaw... Asics for some bizarre reason added a Tiger tag on the heel of the sneaker. It flaps up so you are not sure if it is supposed to go inside the shoe to act as a cushion or on the outside to show their brand. It basically rubs against your heel and could easily cause blistering. If Asics removed this tag, they would be comfortable but because of this simple annoyance, I would not recommend them.

I was amazed at how much arch support there was in such a light shoe! This is super comfortable, lightweight and stylish. Definitely a keeper and in multiple colors! I have very wide feet and was worried that these wouldn't work but they look great and still don't hurt my bunions.

Great shoes. Super comfortable and very good looking. They run a little small, narrow as well. I went a half size larger than I usually wear and they fit fine. I'd go at least a half size larger than usual. Great look and quality seems great so far.

These are great looking shoes, but sizing is all wrong. I don't think that shoes can be made for both men and women simply by making the shoe longer or shorter. Men and women's feet are different. The front part of the part of shoe looks "boxy" on the foot. I think women's feet are slimmer than men's even if the feet are the same length.

I am not sure how to begin this review as I really, really liked the shoes but am not keeping them. The shoes looked great and were a great fit for my feet (which can be hard since I have wide feet). However, the leather from the tongue rubbed against the inside leather of the shoe and it squeaked. This may have stopped with time or a special product but I did not want to take the chance that they would keep squeaking. I did not see other reviews that said this, so perhaps I just got some abnormally squeaky shoes. Other than that, I really liked them!

Unlike some other reviewers, I think the sizing is spot-on, and I don't think they feel narrow at all. Plus, there is some definite arch support in an otherwise minimalist/barefoot style sole. Very comfy kick-around-town shoe that definitely gets noticed (had a neighbor comment on the bright blue as I was walking down the block last night). So if you're looking for a good-looking, lightweight shoe, you've found it. On a side note, I think they also make great driving shoes if you're a three-pedal type.

I rate these shoes a 4/5. At first they felt fairly comfortable. The sole is soft the shoe holds the foot well. But after a day of wear, I noticed some irritation on the sides of my feet. I figured out that the stitching for the grey stripes is on the inside as well and was rubbing up against the side of my feet. As it stretches, I hope the problem fades.

Shoe fits fine, size and width. Hard to find size 14; a little on the expensive side; similar shoes less than 1/2 the price (size 14 gives you leverage, captive consumer). Will see how long these last.

Definitely a light and flexible shoe. I've had a pair of tigers previously and didn't think much how this will wear when I ordered it. It's slim and feels like slippers. I like that light feeling on a summer day. The entire show body is mesh and it's a very dark black color; you can't even see the tiger brand stripes outside. The flaps on the outside stick up on the initial wear. With only a couple minor dislikes but overall I will be wearing them often.

I'm on my 4th pair and love them. It was especially nice to see they upgraded the sole with a heartier tread. My first two pairs wore down completely flat but the newer ones are holding strong. I only wish they would have continued the navy and white.

I've been running in this model for about ten years now. Initially, I started using them as a cheaper minimalist shoe, but now I enjoy the versatility that I can wear them "out and about" as well as on my runs. Fits my narrow heel well. Upper is very adaptable to forefoot /toe box. I highly recommend.
