Originally released in '66 and debuting at the '68 Olympics in Mexico City, the Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 hadn't seen the light of day until Asics pulled it out of the archives in 2002. Because of this, the Mexico gained a new set of fans — cyclists — due to its slim styling. Fast-foward to 2011 and the Mexico 66 is back again, only this time its geared specifiaclly for the "urban cycling enthusiast" with its new hard-rubber sole, perforations inspired by inspired by classic cycling shoes and even 3M reflective material on the laces and on the Asics heel cross. Available in two colors — perfect even if you're just watching the Tour de France.
