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.

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! :)

These are exactly what I was looking for. They're very simple but look great and they actually have arch support. They have a really traditional style of construction the inside isn't really padded or lined. They're very comfortable and great for every day walking.

These are terrific shoes. They run true to size and look great on. I own a few pairs in different colors and always get compliments when I wear them. Although they don't have as much cushion as, for example, shoes made for working out, they are sufficiently comfy for "street sneaker" purposes - walking around town, errands etc. I've also worn them to concerts and all-day festivals and think they offered adequate support for both types of events. Mostly the only decision you have to make is which color to buy!

I have never been one to be loyal to certain brands or care what any brand is as long as I like the product. However, this is my third pair of Tigers. They are lightweight, comfortable, and just look good! Because of some foot issues, I need to have room in the toe of the shoe so my toes are not too restricted. These shoes do not give me any problems in that way byt still feel secure. I will definitely buy them again.

Wanted sneakers like I had when I was a kid. (Come on Adidas. Bring back those from the 70's!). These fit that need. Love them. Note, all my other athletic shoes are 11.5 but these I had to get an 11. Wearing them right now! :)

Awesome, but runs large. These sneakers are soft and very comfortable, however they run a FULL size large. I wear a 9.5 to 10 in a sneaker, and sent back the 9.5 for a 9, which fit perfectly. They are very soft leather which stretches to fit, so if they are a tiny bit snug, give them a week of wear and they will stretch. i got the silver and may go for the gold too!

I bought these for my brother for Christmas. They look awesome but I guess this particular brand of Asics are for those with very high arches. He tried them on and said they were pretty uncomfortable. He has other Asics similar to this but not the Mexico 66, and he loves them! My brother doesn't have flat feet but his arches aren't super high either. These are probably really great shoes for those with the right foot type.

Pretty awesome and iconic. These are not running shoes (and it states this on the label), so there is none of the support of running shoes. These are casual shoes that are comfortable.

This shoe is very versatile and stylish with the pattern and texture of the leather and suede. I have been wearing these non-stop because they are comfortable. Details on the shoe are hard for others to see unless they are up close so from a distance it looks like a regular low profile shoe. When people get a closer look at them I get a lot of compliments....

They are better than I had expected. They fit perfectly, I am a size 8 I bought size 8. I bought grey I am just sick of all the day-glo sneakers out there, hopefully they have run their course. I would not wear them if you are a runner. I have running shoes for that. I just wear them for weightlifting and stationary biking, treadmills etc. (They are my gym shoes) I am very picky and I was expecting to find something that I did not like about them, but it has been about a month. And I love them. I cannot review the durability (right now I am on the stationary bike wearing my very old New Balance Minimus, I can see through them, that is definitely not durable)! But for the price they are fantastic.

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.
