ASICS: History and Heritage
After the second world war, ASICS founder Kihachiro Onitsuka observed children wandering the streets barefoot, and decided to help the youth of his country. By promoting the values of Sport, and providing them with high quality athletic shoes to help them perform their best, he believed he could help the children of Japan build a better future with the philosophy of Anima Sana In Corpore Sano: “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.” In 1949, Onitsuka Co. was born, and soon after, the first ever footwear was released from the fledgling brand: a basketball shoe called the “Tiger.” In the years that followed, Onitsuka Co. (re-named “ASICS” in 1977) designed a myriad of scientifically sound, sport-specific shoes for athletes. Mr. Onitsuka’s emphasis on the spirit of Sport and a focus on the needs of the athlete continue today with ASICS, Onitsuka Tiger, And ASICS Tiger shoes, clothing, and accessories. Our dedication to never stop bettering our best reflects our desire to help you, the athlete, to always Better Your Best.

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.

If you're looking for form not function, go with those 3-4 star Nike's. These may not look THAT nice but they do the job better than expected. They fit perfect as far as the length goes but they are just a tad bit wider than expected (nothing a little tightening of the shoelaces can't fix).
They also are a bit plump around the soles but again, if you want comfortable shoes for a job that requires you to stand/run around for more than 8 hours a day, look no further.
So yeah, GET THESE SHOES! Your feet will thank you. I recieved no kind of discount whatsoever for this honest review. lol
PS I usually get a 9.5 but got a 10 for the upgraded insoles. Probably could have still stuck with the 9.5 but don't mind the extra room.
