Run Longer in the GEL-Foundation 12
Continuing to support the base of performance running footwear is the GEL-Foundation 12. The tried and true runner takes on a stable ride without foregoing any of its flexibility, making it the ideal choice for both moderate and severe overpronators. Further improving upon its renowned construction is the new max support last, which provides a broader midfoot and forefoot with a higher instep volume to accommodate the needs of those with orthotics and thicker feet. Amplifying comfort to a whole new level is the sleeker engineered mesh design by utilizing less overlays to prevent any unwanted friction that may cause blistering or irritation, so that you can enjoy a more adaptable and longer run.
Benefits of the GEL-Foundation 12
- Attenuates shock from harsh impact.
- Dual density midsole to enhance support and stability.
- Perfect shoe for moderate and severe overpronators.

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.
Whether your run takes you down the street or to the finish line, the ASICS� GEL-Foundation� 12 will get you there in comfort with Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL� Cushioning.
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.
