Good to know

The Onitsuka Tiger Serrano is a unisex silhouette that looks great on both men and women due to its slimming effect. The cut is a little narrow, making feet look slimmer and smaller. 

There is no arch support because of the flat soles, and custom orthotics will be difficult to use with the shoe as the insole is glued in, and the cut is quite low.  The shoes tend towards slightly narrow but can be broken in to accommodate wider feet.

Play up your runner-inspired Serrano with sporty shorts and track bottoms to get that right athletic vibe. Or, go a bit less casual and pair your shoe with jeans, a long-sleeved button-up shirt, and a black jacket. For women, skinny jeans, plain blouse, a structured jacket, and scarf can be worn with the casual sneaker.

The Onitsuka Tiger Serrano will add spice to your lifestyle wardrobe. The shoe’s vintage running shoe-style, sleek profile, and enticing colors make It such a head-turner that sneakerheads should have at least one pair in their collection.

But far and away more notable is how many users agree how comfortable the footwear is. The shoe is designed exceptionally well that the comfortable feeling is not limited to the sole but all throughout the shoe, from the vamp to the heel and everywhere else.

The Onitsuka Tiger Serrano comes from a distinguished company with nearly seven decades of history in manufacturing top-quality footwear. The Serrano is a sleek heritage-inspired shoe with shades of 70’s track runners, as seen in its lightweight build and spiked rubber outsole. Released sometime in 2011, the shoes have fast become a staple in many people’s wardrobes. The distinctive runner-style from Onitsuka Tiger makes it a must for lifestyle users and sneakerheads alike.

  • The Onitsuka Tiger Serrano sneaker has an upper made of suede and textile, textile lining, nubby rubber outsole, EVA wedge midsole, and cushioned footbed.
  • Each shoe weighs approximately 255 grams.
