Onitsuka Tiger by Asics

Onitsuka Tiger by Asics Logo
The history of Onitsuka Tiger™ shoes began with the establishment of Onitsuka Co. Ltd. in 1949. Based on the philosophy of bringing up sound youth through sports, the company has maintained the tradition of specializing in the manufacturing of sports shoes and clothing using original ideas and applying epoch-making techniques.

As the Japanese people recovered from the second world war and began to appreciate the benefits of sports, Onitsuka Tiger™ shoes were on their feet. The first basketball shoes in Japan had a tiger face design on the arch of the foot and this became Onitsuka's trademark. In the 1960's, Onitsuka Tiger™ shoes were worn not only by the Japanese, but also by top foreign athletes.

In 2001, ASICS America Corporation quietly resurrected the Onitsuka Tiger™ brand with original models of Onitsuka shoes and Onitsuka clothing updated in today's flavorful colors. Over the past few years, the Onitsuka Tiger™ brand has been enjoying a growing number of new, dedicated shoe followers along with a steady desire for Onitsuka clothing and Onitsuka bags, realized today on Zappos.com. Through sometimes secretive grassroots marketing efforts, ASICS® has been able to spread this word about this authentic comeback for Onitsuka Tiger™.

Now that the secret is out... Onitsuka Tiger™ is a growing and highly sought after brand with its ever-growing lineup of Onitsuka Tiger™ shoes, Onitsuka Tiger™ clothing and Onitsuka Tiger™ bags. There are more Onitsuka Tiger™ mens´s and Onitsuka Tiger™ women´s models just sitting in the ASICS® vault waiting to be re-released. The future is what this retro brand has to look forward to. Because ASICS® knows that there are people out there who don't need to run fast...they just want to look good.

I bought these for my husband. They are his second pair. He likes the style of them most of all. He is hard on his shoes, so the last pair only lasted about a year or so. That being said, they’re nice shoes that look good but perhaps aren’t very durable. Because of the lack of durability, they are a bit pricey. Regardless, I’m sure when these wear out, he will probably get another pair.

I bought the Dark Sepia/Port Royal style. I love love love them and feel so good wearing them. They're comfortable and have more arch support than the last pair of Tigers I owned. The soles aren't very soft or squishy, but not to the point of discomfort. FYI: it's hard to tell from the picture, but the leather part is dark brown, but the suede is black. These shoes probably wouldn't go very well with a brown-based outfit, which is fine b/c I mostly wear black, but good to know if you're unsure.

I've been wearing Onitsuka shoes for decades. Seriously, decades. Still my favorite athletic shoes. Comfortable from the minute I put them on. Doesn't hurt that they are stylish as well. Can't begin to tell you how many compliments I get on these shoes. My only problem is I never feel I have all the colors I need!

I usually wear a 9 1/2. Ordered a 9 and they seemed to fit fine, length-wise. After 2 months of doing Tai Chi in them though I realized the arch support (which is great) was hitting in the wrong spot, creating terrible foot pain (I first thought it was the Tai Chi). Exchanged for 9 1/2 women’s size, now they are perfect. Bought a second pair for outdoor use. Love them and get tons of compliments - mostly from old guys who remember these from their heydays :)

I followed other review suggestions and we t up a half size. Way too big! I could probably go a half size below my normal shoe size and be fine. I ordered the teal. They are actually corduroy and synthetic leather, not mesh.

I really like these, was worried the color would be too "loud" but I love the color. For me the fit is true to size.

These shoes are exactly what I was looking for. I indicated they are true to size, but they are generous at that. I ordered my typical 9.5 (women's) and they fit very well, if not a tad bit big, but definitely not too big. I would order true to size. The insole is not as cushy as I had hoped, but I am on my feet all day and nonetheless had no problem. The color is what I wanted, a very soft yellowish/off white with gray. Cool shoes! I'd order in another color, too.

Spent a lot of time researching and unfortunately could not order the dark gray ones or black ones. Ordered these and whole they are gray they have a hint of mint/grey look which I'm not thrilled about but they do look pretty stylish

The size and fit are superb the minute I put them on. No breaking in time. They are a very soft and pliable leather. The colors navy and oatmeal (oatmeal might not be the correct color description....its a tan). Ordered a half size smaller than what I normally wear as suggested by other buyers and fit perfect. I will be ordering 2 more pairs very soon. One will be all white for work in OR only. They are that comphy.

Super soft leather makes these really comfy, but the thin soles don’t give much support. Great for an everyday shoe.

These look amazing, but they run way small and way narrow - at least in the larger sizes. I usually wear a 13-14 in everything, ordered a 14 for these, and my feet were squeezed from all sides.

Very comfortable quick slip on shoe. No struggle getting these on due to the terry cloth fabric. Ran a bit long... I am a true size 8 had to reordered a 7.5 and it’s fit was perfect. A nice stylish substitute to my Toms.

These are the cutest shoes. Wanted to love them. However, there is no padding in the heel of the shoes and the inside back of the shoe is quite rough. This makes them rub uncomfortably on the heel of your foot. Consequently, you have to wear a sock with the shoe. With athletic socks, you will have to size up. I had surgery 2 months ago for a ruptured Achilles tendon and have been searching for tennis shoes with a low back and low profile around the ankles to wear for physical therapy. If these had some cushion in them, they would have been perfect. So, sadly, these are going back and the search continues. As always, Zappos is the perfect retailer, allowing us to return and return until we find the perfect shoe!
