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-Antares 2 shoes feature a mesh upper with a round toe. The man-made outsole lends lasting traction and wear. Made in China.
Asics are the best for me as far as running/walking. It's going on two years since I purchased these and they are still in great shape. Love them!Published 10 months ago by Heather A K
Was sent by a podiatrist to a local store that watches you walk (or run) in different shoes and recommends the right one, but the shoes were very expensive there. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Susan B
Awesome purchase! I still wear them a year later! Great price as well! They are exactly what I wanted in a workout shoe.Published 16 months ago by Christina
The shoes themselves are likely fine- I unfortunately cannot comment on that particular topic. I ordered these in my usual asics size and was disappointed to find them too small. Read morePublished on April 29, 2013 by dekcar
Really a nice shoe for the money. Very light weight and comfortable. Always have been a fan of ASICS. Would purchase again in another color too.Published on April 12, 2013 by Sweetpea

This is a great cross training shoe at a great price. It fits me true to size (unlike some other reviews), actually like a glove. Read morePublished on December 30, 2012 by Cat
