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.

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.

Beautiful, probably the nicest looking pair of Mexico 66 I have owned. Sadly, they tooled these narrower than standard. And they’re a touch shorter. I’d say a half size small. It’s a bummer. Really sad

I wear a size 7 and ordered these, Mexico 66 slip-on, in a 7 and a 6.5 USA women's. The size 7 was the best fit so I will recommend, at least in the slip-on style to go with your usual size. Great lil shoe, I will be ordering other colors. LOVE the slip-on version.

This is a very thin shoe for very flat feet. So, this was a huge mistake for me. They look awesome though. I should have purchased the Ultimate81.

I'm a 10 1/2 in street shoes. I've often found that I need at least an 11 in any kind of athletic shoes. Not so with these--10 1/2 fit perfectly. I ordered these and a pair of Stan Smith's with green trim because I wanted a new pair of classic athletic shoes. The Stans are quite good (10 1/2 was the right call there, also) but they were a little more rigid and a little heavier than the Ontisukas. Also, while you can't quarrel with the classic looks of the Stans, the Onitsukas are just so cool. Also, they fit like a glove, conform to my foot and feel like a slipper while still providing excellent support. I'm a bit of a classic athletic shoe aficionado and have spent a lot of time seeking out cool low profile Jack Purcells and original Adidas ROMs. I am in love with the Onitsukas. Through no inherent fault of their own, the Stans are going back.

I love the retro profile of the shoes. The patina look is very different. I also have another like these in pure silver and cream also.

I love the look of these, I ended up sizing down a 1/2 size to get the fit right. Overall comfort is so/so, but I may try getting inserts to make them more comfortable. Otherwise I like them.

The right shoe was defective in the sense that it was slightly wider (bulkier) towards the front. Also the outer lateral aspect of the shoe design is not tailored to hug the foot which makes it look support-less on that side.

I've been wearing Onituska Tiger Mexico 66 shoes for the last 10 years, and I only now had to buy a new pair. They are, without doubt, my favorite shoes. Perfect fit, comfort, and style. They go anywhere, with anything. Glad to see they're still being made, and I hope they are out there again in another 10 years!
