Asics Onitsuka Tiger California 78

Hey everyone, I just found these and I thought you would all be pretty psyched on them, as am I.  The Onitsuka Tiger shoes from Asics are pretty much universally loved, a perfect unisex shoe.  This particular model, the California 78 is a classic retro running shoe that invokes images of the Nike Cortez.

Zappos is selling several vegan colorways now, pictured here.  Be mindful, however, that the others are not deemed vegan, nor are the other models of the Onitsuka Tiger.  Also, though we haven’t gotten direct confirm from the manufacturer itself, I generally trust the representations made by Zappos.  They aren’t an evil or lazy company, and if you buy them and they don’t turn out to be vegan, then you can always return them for free!  Seriously, they have the best return policy.  No questions asked, they pay for shipping both ways.  Anyway, check the pics out below and click on the link for more deets!

  1. Hey guys, I remember a post on your blog saying some Onitsuka Mexico 66 models were vegan. However, I could’t find any. Do you remember which ones you found??

  2. Hey Patebbc,

    Thanks for the comment. I wasn’t very clear in the post, but what I ‘m saying that the Onitsuka Tiger models sold on Zappos, many of them weren’t explicitly represented as being vegan. That doesn’t mean some of them aren’t. I generally air on the side of caution when it comes to that. Also, the older post containing the list is old – the vegan models on there might not necessarily be vegan anymore. I welcome those who visit my site to do their own due diligence as well, to get the best information possible, as well as to check my facts. In conclusion, I would go by the list, but double check with Asics just to make ensure accuracy, or to note any changes in the past year. Hope this helps.
