Asics California 78 Vintage Reviews:


This is my fifth pair of Onitsuka Tigers and undoubtedly my favorite. I also have a pair of the following: Mexico 66, Fencing Shoe, Serrano, Ultimate 81. I mention this because my review will compare some of these shoes to the California 78. The feel of this shoe is like a combination of the Serrano (specifically in the midfoot to toe box area) and the Ultimate 81 (in terms of overall comfort and the feel toward the heel area. With regard to external styling it looks like a more fully featured and robust version of the Mexico 66. In summary, this shoe combines all of my favorite aspects of three of my other Tigers into one shoe! It's snug around the midfoot area (like the Serrano) it's super comfortable (like the Ultimate 81) and it has super fresh retro style (like the Mexico 66). One note of caution, I found that this shoe runs very large. My foot is typically somewhere between a 10.5 and 11. My Fencing, Serrano's and Mexico 66's are size 10.5 and my Ultimate 81's are size 11. I usually purchase one of each size and decide from there. With the California 78 I purchased only the 10.5 and found that it was a bit more roomy than what I would like. It was wearable but it was just short of having that "clown shoe" feel to it. I like my shoes to hug my feet a bit snugly while not pinching around the toes or jamming my toes into the front of the shoe. Once I dropped down to the size 10 for the California 78's I found my perfect fit. I'm very picky with the fit of my shoes so this might not be as much of a concern for you but I'd strongly recommend staying at the lower range of your normal sizes and then maybe drop down a half size from there for comparison sake.

Awesome shoes! Very stylish with everything. Could use a little more beef on the out-sole. Other then that, you can match them with just about anything. If you like brighter colors, look up water proofer by sofsole. It will keep your brights, bright and water-proof for a good bit.

Very cool, retro look. Comfy though slightly larger than a typical 8, but I felt going down a half size was too much. Great Zappos service & super fast delivery!
