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.
The ASICS GEL-Foundation Walker 2 shoe combines extra stability with a cushioned ride. This men's walking shoe features a synthetic and mesh upper with two layers of memory foam that mold to the heel for a personalized fit. The dual-density DuoMax midsole system enhances support and stability; GEL cushioning in the rearfoot and forefoot absorb shock in the ASICS GEL-Foundation Walker 2 shoe.
