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.
Don't let anything slow you down in the Gel Landreth 6 running shoes from Asics. This pair of shoes features: Airmesh upper is very breathable and lightweight. Synthetic overlays provide support where most needed. Biomorphic fit upper technology allows the upper to move equally to the foot in the gait cycle which reduces the friction between the material and the foot, preventing blisters. Reinforced stitched toe cap greatly extends the durability of the shoe. Asymmetrical lacing design reduces potential for irritation and provides improved comfort and fit. ComforDry sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment. Solyte midsole material features enhanced cushioning and durability. Rearfoot and forefoot Gel cushioning system attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases. Impact Guidance System for a smoother heel to toe transition. Gender Specific Space Trusstic System reduces midsole weight while retaining the structural integrity of the outsole. Rubber outsole for outstanding traction on a variety of surfaces. Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
