These are reminiscent of running shoes that were popular
during the 1980s. It has a simple clean good looking design.
It doesn't have the large "clunky" appearance common in many
of today's running shoes. The Tiger 81 also features a very
snug but extremely comfortable glove like fit that molds to
your foot. If you tighten the laces just a bit, it is nearly
impossible to slip off the shoe without first losing up the
laces. These shoes are extremely comfortable with or without
socks. Like boat shoes they look good with shorts and no
socks. They are excellent for casual wear and light running.
In my opinion, after wearing these shoes you will like them
and purchase a second pair.
First, these do not run large; so don't be tempted to go 1/2
size bigger. Moreover, these shoes are very light and
simple, no support or much of a heel. Perfect for yoga,
traps or straps biking, comfort wear, maybe smooth surface
running - like slippers with laces. If you are expecting
anything rugged, warm, protective, or supportive you are
buying the wrong shoe. A classic.

This is like my 10th pair Is there any other shoe like this?
One that is very comfortable, holds up very well and that
which is always changing color & material variations? This
is a very exciting shoe, and they seem to have all of them
-- right on the cutting edge of The Tiger!

I love these shoes! I had them in another style from 4 years
ago and decided to get another pair. I love this color
combination as well. They are definitely true to size. I am
a women's 10 and they fit just right. They are good for wide
feet even though they seem kind of narrow.

These shoes have amazing comfort as everyday walking shoes.
There is not a great amount of arch support, but I don't
believe they were designed with that in mind. The material
is great, and they have yet to wear out in any place.

I purchased my retro Tiger running shoes solely based on
reviews and I'm not disappointed in the least! I did have to
buy an inexpensive arch insert because there just wasn't
enough support for me personally, but the shoes are light
and comfortable and I love them!

Wow! These shoes are Sweet! To think I almost bought a pair
of boat shoes. What was I thinking? I can tell as soon as I
put them on that these shoes wouldn't work for me as a
runner (I run mainly trails) but as a fly summer shoe with
no socks and some shorts they are right on! And you know
what else was awesome? I opted for the free shipping in 5-7
business days and received these shoes in two days. I can't
say everyone is going to get their shoes this fast. For all
I know it is stationed in Austin, but I don't think so.
Highly recommend these shoes. In fact, my fiancÚ is
considering getting a pair now since they come in like 15
