Bought this shoes for my son. This is the only brand he will wear. We purchase him a new pair every year for his birthday. They last him all year....he wears them every day. His birthday is about the only time we can get him to travel home to visit...we think it is the shoes.

These look really awesome. However, I found out after a few times of wearing them the left shoe is crushing the back of my ankle. They fit fine, it is just the angle that the back of the shoe has is putting pressure on my tendon making it painful to walk/run or wear for days, so I stopped wearing them. Since I ran outside in the mud I figured Zappos wouldn't take them back.

It's a great shoe, but the picture is a little deceptive. In the picture the shoe looks a nice minty green, but in actuality it's a much stronger polo/golf course green.

Love these shoes! These are my fifth pair of tiger shoes and they are the most comfortable shoes I have purchased. Looking forward to purchasing other colors.

These are comfortable and did what I wanted: a running shoe that could pass as a dress shoe. It's a light shoe with a small (maybe 5/8 inch) heel.

These are my new favorite shoes ever made in the history of shoemaking. Light, durable, and they feel like they were custom made for my foot. I have narrow feet, and these are perfect - no wiggle from side to side and good arch support. I ordered the black/charcoal, and they came with three sets of laces - gray, white, and black. Bonus! And they look like they were made for a ninja - double bonus!!

I'd also recommend: Columbia, Nike, Puma

These were my second pair. They are my favorite shoes. They run a bit narrow so you might want to get a 1/2 size larger than usual.
