My 13-year-old son bought these shoes to replace an old pair of Tigers he loves. Alas, his old model is no longer available so these were a second choice. But he still loves the style and the shoe overall. The sole of the shoe is just not what he was hoping for...more of a basketball bottom than what this shoe offers. This reminds me of an old adidas running shoe.

Have only worn them around the house for an hour so far... comfortable, lots of padding at upper, sole has moderate padding - less than moderate arch support, but there is some. Will need better arch support or arch insert for pronators. I think these will conform well to the foot, since the uppers are textile. The gray is a true light gray, not whitefish, so you don't feel you are wearing white shoes. I seem to be between an 8 and an 8.5 for women in this shoe, but I will re-order an 8 -- I expect it to stretch out. Good for walking around town, but I would not use them for running -- the running shoe engineering has gone a long way since the 70s when these were the marketed for runners. But I wanted them for a casual shoe & for that, they are very handsome shoes! Similar styles would be Skechers & other "athletic-leisure" shoes, but these are much more comfortable in the upper for me.

I was very excited to receive them, but my happiness lasted only one day. I've owned another pair of Onitsuka Tiger by Asics - the Ultimate 81 for a year now and have been happy with them. I find them supper comfy but I wanted something more sturdy with a better support and a thicker sole to wear during my trip to Spain - so I ordered these based on the good reviews on here. Unfortunately, after the first day of wearing them they stretched out so much that now they feel too wide and they do not provide any stability for my feet whatsoever. I'll keep them because they look great and will only wear occasionally.

Squeaky shoes. Every step. Talked to my sister who used to design shoes for a living and she told me it's a production thing, poor quality thing. Last Onitsuka shoes I bought were great. These not. Lame.
