Designed for the gym rat in all of us. Fit and support are the two most important features in a training shoe, and the GEL-UpshotTM was designed with goodies like ASICS' Trusstic System and GEL Cushioning System to add an abundance of both.
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 shoe meets my needs as to comfort & wear, just don't like the mesh on upper , which picks up dirt easily and shows a grey dirty look all the time even if I try to clean it.Published on December 16, 2012 by bichonlady
