Ronnie Fieg worked with Asics on several styles to form the R4D collection (Ronnie for David Z.) for this fall/winter. The Ultimate 81 from Onitsuka Tiger is the newest style to this collection. Known to be one of the brand`s strongest style, it deserves the colors and material to stand out on its own. Featuring:
* Vintage aqua leather along with a marine navy suede, a very clean looking combination
* Rubber outsole * Unisex. Men sizes shown. Men size 6.5 is women size 8
I spotted these at DavidZ and totally wasnt expecting a whole lot because they just look like fashion sneakers, nothing designed or technical. But they are so comfortable and have a decent amount of support without being a bulky running shoe. They are so comfortable, too, they arent tapered in the toe like so many Adidas or Nike, they have a classic round toe which is a welcome relief after being in high heels all day.
And most importantly the colors are RAD. The picture doesnt do it justice. Although I have to say that the extra set of laces does NOT match at all, but it was a nice idea.
As for size, I went a full size down in these, they run big.

I love these shoes. They are very handsome indeed!
