Onitsuka Tiger

Onitsuka Tiger 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.

These shoes used to be very good for what they were. Now the materials used are inferior including the dye. Do not wear white socks in these shoes, you will get blue dye stains.

Okay, If You Wear 11 1/2, in sneakers, get these in 11. seems like these lo-top Tigers run a half size bigger. So comfortable, just like everyone says, an awesome shoe, great leather, --probably my favorite shoe.

Wanted a retro runner for casual wear, and these are nearly exact duplicates of the shoes I used for cross-country in the mid-70s. Nice nostalgic touch, very comfy for daily wear, but I’ll stick with mor modern footwear for 10ks and up!

Not at all the same as the original. The sole is far too small for the size of the shoe and the tongue is so flimsy it folds in on itself when putting the shoe on. First bought a pair of these many many years ago and fell in love with the shoe. Onitsuka/ascics changed the style shortly after, so when I saw this style again, I was originally really excited and bought a pair. Huge disappointment. Not the same shoe, not very comfortable, and that narrow sole is almost unsafe in my opinion. Will not recommend nor purchase this again.

The inner side of my foot felt fine, but the outer side of my foot (e.g. the pinky toe) felt extremely cramped. They are a bit narrow and/or not shaped the way I would hope. If you have very narrow and flat feet, you might be fine. I have to return these, which is a bummer because the look is great.

I like the way they look in person. I bought one half size bigger and it fits perfectly, so they run about a half size small. They’re fairly comfortable and light.

Everybody said to order a size or a half size up... I shouldn't have done that. I ordered a half size up and they feel a half size too big. I'll make them work, though. But I'd suggest ordering true to size. Other than my mistake on size, I LOVE these shoes so far. Highly recommended.

These slip-on are great for just relaxing in or outside. They feel Comfortable, not tightly fitting and the colors I chose are just my taste. I’m now searching for those hard to find colors.

I had to return the first pair (Woman's size 10,I am usually 9.5-10) and order a whole size larger to fit my arch support in them but I Love the 2nd pair! I thought they run a little short so maybe go 1/2 - 1 size up but then you will love them. I am going to go back and order more pairs in this size. I just wish they came in all black, sole also, so I could fake it and where them with slacks...

The style is great and the blue color is super saturated and vivid. I am a woman and struggle to find shoes wide enough in the toe box. You would think at least athletic shoes would avoid the idealized pointed narrow toe, but frequently not the case! These are actually wide enough in the toe to give wiggle room. The biggest down side is the lack of cushioning. I added a heel insert which helps a lot, but you cannot remove the original insole so your options are limited. Fun for fashion or running errands around town, but definitely not for athletic endeavors.

This is an odd shoe. It looks like a retro sneaker but feels more like a slipper. Its structure is strange: there is zero support at all, but significant padding and the padding feels very soft, like walking on an athletic mat. Not terribly practical. Okay for casual wear, but walking long distances (>2 miles), the balls of my feet start to hurt slightly. Makes me feel light on my feet, which I like. Tread is also fairly weak, allowing slipping, much like a tennis shoe. I can see the weak tread preventing ankle injury if changing direction quickly on a grippy surface like concrete, but I could also see it leading to dangerous slips and falls. I have very good balance so the weak tread is an asset, but if you want a shoe with good traction, avoid this. Also, seems awful expensive at $65. I got this from a brick-and-mortar retail store on clearance and it was much cheaper, but I would not pay full price for this; it's a cheap, minimal shoe. Doesn't wear well, neither treads nor uppers are at all durable. Wearing it around a city will quickly wreck it. I barely wear mine and it's already wearing out. It's also thin and not very warm in winter, but not breathable enough for hot summer weather. What were they thinking when they made this one? This shoe looks good and is comfortable to wear when lounging around in an airconditioned building, but that's about it. Compare to other retro sneakers like NB classics or Saucony Jazz and this shoe looks completely inadequate and overpriced.

Love how light the Serrano feels on your feet, I've always purchase the 66 but this is going to be my new favorite. As a matter of fact I'm ordering another pair in a different color.

Firsly, I received these as a X-mas gift. So I haven't wore them much until recently. These make a great summer shoe. Very light and somewhat breathable. I personally went with my running shoe size (which is half a size bigger than my casual shoes). I'm glad I did, my toes have enough wiggle room. The insoles may take some time for some people to get used to. They're like a memory foam material, but slightly firmer and there really is no arch support. Another personal preference of mine, I hate arch support. But once broken in they comfort to the feet well. The only draw back to the insoles is the liner material attracks fuzzies and hair, so if you have pets be warned of furballs in your shoes. I do however don't see them holding up very long. Over the short period I've worn them the upper looks like it's already seperating from the outsole around the heel. I will also add that as of recently I've had a minor running injury, plantar fasciitis, and I've mostly wore the Serranos for comfort. There's a bit of cushion in the heel. They've been a big help.

Firstly I'm an 11 1/2 in everything (except Converse of course) but the 11 1/2 were too big, sent them back and got them in an 11 and they fit perfectly. I absolutely love these, I have flat feet so these are perfect for me, so comfortable right out of the box.
