Unfortunately, the Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81 didn’t work for me. The arch support felt rather painful, and the shoes were pretty stiff. The heel wasn’t too high off the ground, but the drop was significant. Couldn’t run or walk comfortably in these, so had to return them, sadly. Make no mistake, though: these shoes are stylish. They looked so good on my feet, but I really couldn’t afford to keep them. Next trial: Asics Gel-Hyperspeed 4.
