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.

Tech: What's Inside the JB Elite?
Split Sole Design Outsole:
The outsole provides the same cushioning that the shoe has been known for, while further enhancing the shoe’s traction zones and flexibility.
Seamless TPU Overlays:
Seamless TPU overlays are lined with a single-layer mesh that provides optimal comfort and forefoot fit without losing any of ASICS’ renowned durability construction.
ASICS’ Integrated Lace-Garage is accompanied by a thinner tongue and speed rope lace system that protect the laces from interference during a match.
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.

I have about 20 wrestlers in my mat room wearing these, and unfortunately, for almost all of these shoes the outside rubber sole (right next to where your little toe lives) tore within a couple of weeks of practice. Almost everyday, I can find little pieces of the soles that have ripped off of one wrestler's or another's Gold JB Elite.
It was especially bad because I had encouraged the team to get them. :-(
I got the black/gold color, it looks badass to say the least. I usually wear a size 8, which is what I ordered and the length fits fine. Although, even with normal sized feet the shoes do feel pretty tight around the ball of your feet at the knuckles. The sides of my feet would really hurt doing movements like calf raises. What i've been doing lately is keeping the laces loose throughout the bottom and just tightening it at the top (ankle) and tying them.
I strictly use these shoes for my leg days at the gym about twice a week for around 2hrs. They are still very much intact. I wouldn't recommend walking around with them for the day. My feet were aching and for some reason the mesh on the insides are really rough when first using them. They left scabs on the sides of my legs from all the chaffing throughout the day.
All that aside, if you're looking for cheap squat / deadlifting shoes that look and work great then these are definitely an option. Just take a week to break them in and leave the laces loose at the bottom.
