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.
Named for the 33 joints in the foot, the Asics Gel Blur 33 2.0 delivers the perfect amount of flexibility and cushioning runners feet need during trainings. This pair of shoes features: Light and breathable mesh upper with synthetic overlays that add support without weighing you down. Reflective elements increase visibility in low lighting. Full lace up design for more centralized support. Padded collar, tongue and insole for comfort. Supportive Solyte midsole with Rearfoot Gel Cushioning System attenuates shock during impact phase, perfect for neutral or under-pronating runners. Impact guidance System reduces overall midsole weight while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. High abrasion rubber outsole offers great traction and durability. Guidance Line flex groove that decouples the tooling along the line of progression for maximum stride efficiency.

Not very supportive, kind of flat. I had to buy orthotic inserts. Also, the shoes are now falling apart. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Kate
Runs a tad small. I usually wear a 6 or 6.5, bought these in a 6 and regret it. I guess I'll squeeze because the size 6 is so much cheaper than the other sizes!Published 2 months ago by Samantha
My feet are narrow - so these fit great- I had another pair that I wore out and wanted the same since they had been so good.Published 2 months ago by Joyce Strong
