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 normally wear New Balance in a size 10 and after reading the reviews I ordered a 9. They fit ok, my toes do go to the end, but I think a 9 1/2 would of been too large. I have only tried them on so far, but they seem to have good arch support.

This is my favorite shoe for doing Tai chi. The sole is thin and flexible, the fit good.

I like these, and I’m really picky re: arch support. I am consistent a women’s 10. I ordered the men’s 8.5 like the chart suggested, and they fit great!

Overall I really like the shoe. The corduroy is cool. I have two other pairs of Onitsuka Tigers in different styles, both in size 12.5, and these shoes in 12.5 are noticeably looser.

I have ordered many pairs of Ultimate 81s in the past. The unisex sizing always fits the way I expect it to in the length and width. The unisex sizes are slightly wider than the sizing specifically made for women. So, a thicker sock will usually take up the extra space in the shoe and still provide comfort. These shoes are stylish and super comfortable. They are great for travel and errands around time. I highly recommend the brand and style.

Depending on the shoe, I wear 12, 12wide, 12-1/2, or 13. My feet are moderately wide. Sneakers are usually a 13 for me. These fit more like dress or casual shoes, so the 12-1/2 was too long, but comfortably wide at the ball of the foot, and felt compliant enough to stretch where needed. Going down a half size to 12.

I own 3 pairs of the Tigers and always looking for discounts when they pop up. A lot can be said about how “cool” these shoes are but the most important thing I've learnt is that when choosing a size, getting them half a size smaller than what I would normally get, made them fit better. Overall, getting them a half size smaller made them still fit comfortably and you avoid that weird "bent" look you get when shoe is too big for your foot.

These are great shoes! I've had several pairs over the years, and I love them. Extremely comfortable out of the box, and surprisingly good support given their slim profile (I have a neutral step). I can wear them all day w/ no trouble at all. They are also really good looking! Great with jeans. I often receive compliments about them. I am only sad that my favorite color combo, the grey with orange stripes & laces is no longer available! Lots of other color options though.

I'm really digging these shoes. Really comfy with a wider sole and shoe than some of the other Onitsukas in their lineup. The material is easy to get scuffed/stained, so make sure you are treating them with a protector of some kind. Even with using some, I already have a couple of marks on them. Either way, love the shoes!

Comfy and light. Perfect for wandering the streets. Stylish and fun. I did a leather treatment to keep the stains off.

The shoes are very cute and I love the pale pink color. Unfortunately, they run small and narrow. I would order a larger size, but the arch support was not comfortable. Sadly, I have to return them.

They just feel good to wear. Even with their lightness, the soles are tough enough for any type of bicycling where you don't feel the pedal points though the soles.

Light weight and breathable. I didn’t like the no laces, so I added laces to them myself. White really easy to get dirty. Low profile, very minimal cushion.

This is a sporty-cute old-style sneaker! However, it is definitely NOT an athletic shoe! It has no support or substance to it, and it is only appropriate for athleisure wear.

With low arches that, before detection, gave me constant back pain, I buy nothing that doesn't provide arch support. This shoe does. It does not have a soft foam interior but more importantly, for me, it has a solid sole and foot bed that reduces stress on my feet during long walks around Costco. That said, the shoe is adorable. It has a low profile so it looks like an aerobic shoe but provides support like a walking shoe. I will buy it again. Too bad there's only black and white.

I got the men’s 6.5/women’s 8. Love the style; only complaints are that I wish they were wider, and my left big toe tends to strike the top of the shoe even tho they’re plenty long.

They feel good right out of the box. The sheen of the leather is right on the mark, just shiny enough. They have that long, svelte look. Maybe if your feet were really big, and you wanted small looking feet, you wouldn't like them. But I do.
