The iconic Mexico 66 was born in 1966 and debuted at the 1968 Olympic games pre-trials in Mexico with a premium white leather, stitched with red and blue tiger stripes. Today, the classic runner has been reawakened and remains to be the most popular shoe in the Onitsuka Tiger collection.
Since 1949, Onitsuka Tiger has created stylish sports products inspired by the Japanese values of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Through their crafts, Onitsuka Tiger brings together East and West, and demonstrates what it means to be "Made of Japan."

Here's the trick with the Onitsuka sizing for me. Ninety percent of the time, I'm an 11, of European 44 or 44.5 (but in Converse Chucks I'm a 10 and a half). So, with the Onitsuka's across the board, if I'm buying a smooth, leather shoe, I go a half-size down - 10 1/2. If buying an Onitsuka shoe in suede, canvas or any other type of material, I buy the 11.
Weird, I know, but it works.
Just putting them on to break them in, I knew-- these shoes rock. I can see why Bruce Lee wore them, and I'm speaking as someone with almost-flat feet who feels most comfortable on my heels and "balls" near my toes. They are very lightweight, plus the look and feel is amazing. I will not be putting this shoe through anything more than travel and walking/running, but I imagine if you were careful this shoe could handle a lot more. The mesh is not the thin pliable stuff that I've seen used in other shoes/clothing; it has an industrial feel to it (sturdy.)
Walking and Running is like gliding, and support posture well. I'm debating just getting a pair to wear for the house to eventually use when my mesh ones see more wear. I'm not a big fan of vans, converse, or nikes. These are probably the best shoes I've ever bought in my life. Those who doubt Indonesians crafting Japanese designs: have no fear: they feel professionally made with many intricacies intact.
Regarding the sizing, a lot of people say they run a half size too large. I don't think so. Plus, they are the lightest, softest shoes out of the box I've ever worn. I am in love. They look great, too.
The shoes fit like a glove. No pun intended. DO NOT WEAR SOCKS WITH THEM. They'll probably stretch out. If you have to wear socks, maybe try a 1/2 size smaller. I just wear them without.
I have high arches, and the arch support in these things is incredible. I can wear them all day and my feet feel wonderful at the end, instead of achy.
I don't have much more to say other than them being great shoes. I don't wear them often, because the banana yellow is obviously a bit obnoxious for daily wear, but I plan to buy another pair in a more 'daily use' color, so I guess I'll get to see how they hold up to more frequent wear. As is, I only wear them a couple of times a month, and keep them boxed up the rest of the time.

Feel different to a lot of trainers, I think it is because of a low arch on the insole but you quickly get used to it.
The suede at the back of the heel does get very grubby
