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.
Rack up the mileage with the Asics Gel-1170 running shoes. Designed for light-to-moderate overpronators, these running shoes feature an air mesh upper with supportive synthetic overlays. The Trusstic System ensures a lightweight yet firm sole. The durable SpEVA midsole with GEL Cushioning enhances energy return and shock absorption while DuoMax technology increases support and stability throughout your gait cycle. The DuraSponge rubber outsole delivers added cushioning and lasting wear.
