I buy these Tigers because of the way they look. They are beyond cool, with their ultra low-profile design. They're sexy shoes with a definite European flair to them (though they are Japanese by design). You see these frequently around Paris on the feet of the younger generation. Even though I'm in my 40's they still look cool. You just can't find a cooler-looking, old-school style sneaker. I get compliments all the time. This, I may add, is my second pair, with 2 more on deck. Even my 14 year old son fell in love with them since nobody at his school wears them. So they have a certain "hard-to-find" cool factor that makes them more doable to many. Having said all that, they are not the most supportive shoe out there. In fact, they really are just for looks. You could run in them because they're so light, but they have zero arch support so it would be somewhat like running barefoot. The sole is flat and thin, of course. Still, they're like a feather and they look great. If you want serious running or walking shoes, these aren't them. But if you want some cool shoes, look no further.

It seem the Onitsuka line needs to carry separate reviews for the different variations. A major flaw of The Mexico 66 is its complete lack of traction on a wet smooth surface. The micro diamond tread (unique to this model) is very ineffective in this regard. In addition the sole does not offer much padding and feels thin. Needless to say I was quite shocked at my negative experience of these shoes in the face of almost universal acclaim of the Onitsuka Tiger. This, I think, is due to the reviews for all models being lumped together because the Mexico 66 is certainly no 5 star shoe.

Got these for my husband for his birthday. I was hesitant because he's extremely picky about shoes. He loves them and raves about how comfortable they are! Great purchase!

I wanted a pair of shoes I can "mom" in, run errands, play with my kids, and still be stylish. These fit the bill and they're a great addition to my staple shoe collection! These ran large, so I ended up going down a half size.

This is my second pair of Onitsukas and my first pair of Mexicos. I bought these initially because I liked the way they looked in the video above. I was first concerned that they wouldn't offer a lot of arch support, but that's not too bad. They don't really have a ton, but it's not too bad as long as you're not running a bunch in them or using them for athletics or skating or anything. Walking around in them all day isn't an issue and they're actually really comfortable, but they do get really flattened looking after a while. I really love this shoe a lot. It looks awesome with skinny jeans. My favorite part is the blue flap that overhangs from the back. It adds a nice touch. The vintage feel these shoes have is pretty incredible, and I get a ton of compliments on them. What's really cool too is they're really unique and hard to find. Not a lot of people have shoes like these. Totally worth the money. I'll definitely be buying more Onitsukas.

Best world traveller shoe. No arch support. Great for bare feet, if you actually wash your feet. There is no better shoe...when you get a good pair. Large number manufactured leaves a lot of space for irregularities. I've had 2 great pairs and 1 awkward set. Still a great shoe.

I love these shoes, they're very stylish and cute. It's true that they do not offer a ton of support - they are somewhat flimsy, and I would not wear them if I was walking 10 miles. However, given their lightweight construction, they are still very comfortable and do offer some support. I would buy them again!

I've been searching for a good looking, comfortable sneaker that I can wear with leggings, jeans and to casual work events. These fit the bill perfectly. I wore them non-stop over the first week and didn't need to break them in. If you're on the fence about them, I'd go ahead and get them. I typically wear 9.5 in shoes, 10 in tennis shoes. Ordered the 9.5 (men's 8) and fit great. Might be tight with a thick sock but works great with a thin one.

Super light and comfy until you have repeated toe bends and then the toebox breaks in weird spot hitting the top of my big toe causing mild pain.

Review is for the yellow leather pair. Awful show. Im very disappointed in Asics for their design effort here. I own many pairs of Tigers and have loved then all; until this pair. The leather heel backing is so stiff as to completely cut up the rear of your heel if you walk any further than a couple hundred yards in these. They are all but unwearable in any type of routine daily activity. I'm left hoping that Zappos with take a return despite the fact that they have been worn.

Overall I'm iffy with these. The birch/Indian ink/latte colorway is definitely more brownish than the pictures imply. I'm not sure if it's actually the color of a latte, but it's definitely more latte than milk-white. The leather tab on the back always pops up rather than sits "down" and flush with the back of the sneaker. I'm not sure if more wear will soften the leather and make it more floppy..but we'll see. It will bother me more come summer when I'm wearing shorts again. I think it runs about 1/2 size large which is not how my other Onitsukas (Ultimate 81) fit. It's not a deal breaker but I think the arch may fit a bit better if I sized down. That said, overall the shoe is comfortable and I have no problem wearing them all day.

My husband loves Tigers but his feet get cold in the standard ones during the Winter months. These offered a little more warmth and aren't as quick to be soaked in the rain. I'm not saying they're waterproof by any stretch of the imagination, but they do offer a little more substance.

I've had close to 10 pairs of Mexico 66s in a variety of colors over the years. They are my favorite shoes hands down. Super lo profile, they break in quick and you never want to take them off. "Fit's like a glove" is an understatement. The only drawback (that really doesn't affect me) is that they have minimal arch support, so I would recommend a pair of super feet to compensate.

This is the perfect shoe for me; it hits all the marks, as the other reviewers have already said. Its slim-line keeps me from feeling bulky, and I do wear them for leisure and gym activities, though not for running. It has low to moderate arch support and padding, the way all sneakers used to be back in the day. But, now that I am middle-aged, I need more padding for actual pounding sports. Anyway, overall a great shoe and a classic.
