Japanese sportswear label ASICS will forever be revered for it's forward thinking technology, distinctive silhouettes and the iconic tiger stripe branding. Founded by Kihachiro Onitsuka in 1949 as Onitsuka Tiger, Onitsuka soon changed its name to ASICS in 1977, an acronym for the Latin expression “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano” (“You should pray for a healthy mind in a healthy body”).
This is a mantra that that brand would go on to live by, specialising in running sneakers and apparel, yet their lifestyle range is not to be overlooked.
ASICS stays true to its heritage and releases a variety of running shoes as well as lifestyle options. With their next-level comfort and support technology, ASICS release some of the most comfortable trainers on the market.
