In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.
My favorite Asics shoe! Love it! Too bad we are forced to have the newer models that simply don't fit my feet as well or feel/look as nice.Published 14 days ago by myrddinn
I know these are the shoes I want and when you don't need to try them on, Amazon is where to go. Great product at a great price. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Rocket
Thank you ASICS for making a shoe in wide sizes. No more buying a shoe that too long just to get one that's wide enough. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Gregory E Mojzak
These are great shoes for the avid runner. I rarely find myself getting the same shoes twice. These fit right, gave me the support I needed, and didn't look crazy. Read morePublished 11 months ago by N.T.

Awesome shoes. Great support. They really absorb the impact. Super comfortable. I haven't put a lot of miles on them yet, but they are much better than my older pair of ASICS. Read morePublished on September 17, 2011 by Michael Brunner
An Excelent choice. Very good quality at accesible price. Perfect for running everyday. I am very satisfied and I recommend it.Published on August 23, 2011 by Sergio
I ran 5k/day for about 7 months in these...Now I just wear them as everyday shoes. The offset lacing takes a bit getting used to but after awhile you get used to them. Read morePublished on May 17, 2011 by Eyes Wide Open
