I have at least wore up three pairs of these and I cannot get enough. They are great shoes for style and comfort. Do not wear them if you are planning to walk more than 3-4 hours though.

My husband loves the Onitsuka Tiger, he finds it very comfortable. Which is probably why he has five pairs!

These shoes are fantastic! They are perfect in terms of minimalism, comfort, and styling. Super light and flexible, but supportive in all the right spots. If these were truly designed in 1966 for the Mexico Olympics then they did a great job, still cool.

These shoes are awesome. This is my 3rd pair in a month! I love these shoes because they are stylish and no one has them. I love Zappos and so glad that they have these shoes. Will buy again!

I initially bought a pair of Mexico 66 for their sleek look and versatile design. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and how comfortable these sneakers are. I just purchased my seventh pair in a matter of two weeks. These are minimalist shoes that make you feel almost barefoot. The sleek classic design and different color combinations make these great shoes to wear. It is definitely a nice break from the oxfords and loafers that I wear during the week.

This shoe is a great shoe overall. The style is perfect, and was everything i wanted and more. If you have a pair of indigo colored jeans, beware to try not let it rub off on your shoe. Im a sneaker, as well a denim geek and this shoe really in a way completes a good outfit. Even though the price of this shoe is really high, i would definitely buy another pair. Oh, and make sure to downsize by 1/2 for a perfect fit!

These are an excellent Classic! This is my fifth pair of Mexico 66 shoes and I just love them. They are so comfortable and neat and look perfect on my feet. Too bad the yellow ones are currently not available. I own them too and like them the most. These are highly recommended!

Due to being super happy with an Onitsuka pair I bought recently for working out I decided to get another just to wear around everyday. I love these, they will go with everything and of course are super comfy. I love wearing them.

Love the look of these shoes, and the fact that they are uncommon. They weren't as comfortable as I would have thought, but that doesn't matter to me! I love these shoes and have purchased more as a result.

This is my second pair of Mexico 66's. I loved the first ones so much, I wore them out and had to get a replacement. I wouldn't do any real sports in these, but for walking around the town and looking sporty, they can't be beat. Love all the color combination. Asics, keep 'em coming!

These have been my go-to shoes for over two years now, and they look like brand-new still. The shoe is easy to clean, often requiring no more than a cloth and water. The arch support is solid, and the perforated footbed is breathable. I'm not a fan of the flap on the heel, but I get over it, I would just rather it be glued down or not be there.

Since I bought mi first pairs of Asics shoes 5 years ago I have become an avid user of this brand. Nowadays the only shoes I own are Asics and this Mexico 66 white and blue model it's the classic and most beautiful design of all. They are one the best purchases I have made through Zappos.com. I can recommend they are one of the choice to be made.

Great trainers! I just got the mexico 66 in the mail today and I absolutely love them! I have rather wide feet and the Mexico 66's fit perfectly. Don't be fooled, the rather minimal soles make for a very comfortable pair of shoes. I don't agree with a previous reviewer that these have extra high arches and can be painful, since I've had no such problems with them. Buy these shoes: they're retro-cool, unique, comfortable and well made!

A good looking shoe that really only needed a day or two to break in. Very lightweight and very nimble. Not the warmest pair of sneakers for the winter, but they're good for a college student whose outdoor experience is primarily shuffling between classes. Some areas where the craftsmanship could be better (busted seams, exposed glue) but overall something I expect to wear for some time.

Fantastic shoe. Well-made, great style, and comfortable. Can wear these (and my Ultimate 81's) all day. I'm only rating this one 4 overall because it's a little pricey in comparison to similar styles. Overall, worth it.

Tricky - I loved these shoes for months before I decided to purchase--when they arrived in the mail I was dissapointed to see that the green shoes I had ordered were much darker in color than I had anticipated--much less feminine than I had expected. They were, however, very comfortable, as all asics are. The tag that sticks up in the back and the "X" of leather across the heel are my favorite features. The shape of the shoe looked great with all types of pants too... I would recommend these shoes, and Zappos to anyone :)

I bought this shoe in the green, which is great, because it is green on green tones, very retro looking. It truly has the cut and color and style of an old-school shoe, not an imitation. Feels great, comfortable, I have no arches (at all), and the slight arch they put in has been helpful for support. This shoe has proven to be perfect for my daily Manhattan walking, when I take my work heels off...

Onitsuka Tiger - Style of shoe and colors are nice but not very comfortable. This shoe is narrow and very flat. If you have flat feet, I don't recommend this shoe. Zappos best online service- five stars

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.
