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-ContendTM low-profile athletic shoe delivers everyday comfort n a lightweight package intended for the entry level runner. This pre-laced women's athletic shoe sports a minimalist-inspired synthetic leather and open mesh upper with reflective detailing and a removable insole. For stability and comfort, the upper is stitched around the EVA board and directly attached to the midsole. The ASICS GEL-ContendTM performance shoe boasts rearfoot GEL cushioning for lasting underfoot support.
