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.

Don't buy the Zappos exclusive Onitsuka Tigers! They are not leather like the true Onitsukas. The Zappos exclusive shoes were very uncomfortable and hurt my feet. The original Onitsuka Tigers Mexico 66 felt like pillows on my feet. In fact I have a pair that I am trying to replace and they have a hole in the bottom of the shoe after wearing them every day walking to and from work for 2 years and they are still the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. these rip off fakes don't even compare!

On my third pair of these shoes, can't get enough of them. It's worth mentioning that these shoes have very little arch support and the outsole seems to wear out very quickly in my experience. It doesn't bother me too much, but I wouldn't recommend it to those who are looking for comfortable shoes to walk in for extended periods of time.

These are great shoes. They fit, look great, feel great and go with so many different outfits. I am very happy with them. In fact, now my boyfriend (I am female) wants a pair! We are going to have to alternate our shoe days.

Lightweight, comfy and breathes really well. There is not much support for this shoe, but the comfort level is high and has been great when riding my bike or just walking around.

I bought my first pair and now I am looking for a second pair in a different color. They fit great, there is a little bit of room in the toe area that make these shoes fit more comfortable. You can wear it with socks or without, it will still fit you great.

Just wanted to say that Zappos is awesome. My order was delayed due to a hold placed on my card by my bank after I entered my billing address wrong...even though the delay wasn't their fault, Zappos upgraded shipping to next day for free. I'm a business owner and I think I need to upgrade my customer service, because I'm definitely going to tell people about this shopping experience.

My son (high school) wanted a casual shoe that was comfortable and these fit the bill perfectly. He has a narrow foot, and does not like a high arch support, tends to be very picky on both style and fit. He wears these every day and they have been perfectly comfortable from day one. The material is soft and light - hardly any padding, so this is definitely a summer 'everyday' shoe, not an athletic shoe.

I never wear tennis shoes, but something about these shoes attracted me right off. Having worn them just about everywhere for the past month, I have to say they are the best casual shoes that I own. They are just like putting on slippers! These are my new go-to shoes when my feet have to be comfortable. The arch is the best part of the shoe because it allows me to walk longer distances in them without looking like I am on a major trek. They are very cute with jeans.

I buy Tigers because they're well made, and because they fit my foot perfectly. Super light, too! I love going for long walks in them, it feels like I'm not wearing anything. The subtle arch, for me, is perfect. My feet have a moderate natural arch, and shoes with too much of an arch in the sole actually cause my tendon to cramp up. The arch in the Tigers is barely noticeable, and offers just enough support right where it's needed.

These shoes are awesome. Really comfortable and cute. I wore them trekking all over Italy and they were great. Only thing is that they run a little big. I normally wear a 7 and ordered the corresponding size. I ended up having to ship them back and get a smaller size. No problem though since it's free shipping both ways!

These look great, enough arch support. Order a half-size bigger, at least, these run pretty tight.

A few customers have commented on the arch support. I have flat feet and when I tried the shoes on, they feel like they have high arches. I think this is what some people have commented about. That is probably not an issue if you have normal arches. It is a little uncomfortable at first, but not to the point where I could not tolerate it. I decided to wear the shoes and see if it got better. It did improve, but I still can feel the bump near the arch. I decided to keep the shoes because they look cool. Sometimes you have to sacrifice for fashion. These are stylish shoes that have received many compliments.

I have a pair of the Tigers Gaitran model size 13, which fit me beautifully. The Mexico 66 size 13 are definitely smaller, and too small for me.

These shoes are pretty awesome. They are comfortable and easy going. I guess the only thing would be that like most new shoes they took about a week of wear to break in (the back upper edge of the heel park kind of hurts at first,where the flap is) but it totally went away and now they are perfect. The sizing is pretty accurate, I wear 6 women's and got both a 6 and 5½ they are both very wearable but the 5½ feels better as they stretch to fit your foot over time, so half a size smaller might be good.

I bought these because Adidas changed my all-time favorite Original Samba (stiffer, not true to size, different construction/materials, etc.). These Asics are even more comfortable and have a similar retro look, but I don't know about their longevity yet. I'm a little skeptical because the treads are much thinner, but that's part of what makes them feel like a pair of slippers from the time you take them out of the box. I highly recommend these shoes. I get compliments on them if that matters to you. They're also a good deal, so if they do wear quickly, I won't feel guilty buying a replacement pair.

I have owned 3 pairs of shoes, with different patterns, in the last 7 years. I like them for the following reasons: They last a long time (2 years of regular use) and they look super cool. Other reasons I like them: They are lightweight They clean easily They are very comfortable They look super cool They last a long time.

Amazing arch support! Very comfortable! Be sure to order a half-size smaller. So, 12 would need 11.5.

I concur with the Atlanta reviewer and give at least a word of caution that for some the arches will be uncomfortably high.

I decided to take a break from my usual vans/polo's and this was perfect.They're not too sporty so they're great for an average collage student. If you're used to shoes like vans or polo's you may find the soles on these to be a bit narrow. It's uncomfortable at first but I got used to it. Other than that these shoes are extremely comfortable. My only concern is that the tread seems to wear quickly and also these are pretty slick if you're walking on a wet floor.

I've had these shoes for three years now and let me tell you, they are wonderful. A few people here complain about the arch being too high, well, I think these people may have flat feet! I used to be the same. I did not even know I had a problem until I wore removable insoles for the first time and found out that I could walk for miles without getting sore feet. These shoes do not need extra insoles. They are perfectly arched! Not only that, they last. I have worn them nearly every day and there are no holes yet. Unfortunately, they have bumped up the price of these things since the last time I bought them. I guess people have really caught on to how wonderful they are.
