Introduced to the United States in 1977, the ASICS® name was inspired by the Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano" which translates to "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." The ASICS® mission—to create a healthy, happy lifestyle by promoting total health and fitness—has remained the same since its inception in 1949 in Kobe, Japan. Now recognized as a leader in athletic shoes and clothing, ASICS® is always at the forefront of creating something new, something comfier, something to keep you warmer, something to keep you drier and everything to keep you moving.

The collection of ASICS® shoes offers something for everyone. From ASICS® running shoes to ASICS® trainers to ASICS® tennis shoes—including the popular ASICS® Gel® shoes— has a versatile selection of ASICS® athletic shoes for men, women, boys and girls.

One of the most well-known ASICS® inventions is the ASICS® GEL® cushioning system. This exclusive silicone-based technology, found throughout all their most popular styles, incorporates gel inserts at high-impact areas in the shoe's midsole to enhance shock absorption, support and comfort.

The iconic ASICS® GEL-Kayano® running shoe just one of the many styles to feature this GEL® cushioning system, pairs classic styling with cutting-edge technology, and keeps the focus on comfort and stability. To help prevent Achilles tendonitis, this high-mileage trainer features a 3mm raised heel gradient that relieves much of the loading that causes Achilles tension for men and women.

With a sleek low profile and sporty yet feminine appeal, the women's ASICS® GEL-Cumulus® 12 shoe provides an exceptionally plush ride with a broad, stable platform designed for pure cushioning and comfort. Women's-specific forefoot Solyte® cushioning directly under the ball of the foot and a memory foam mesh upper customize the fit.

The ASICS® GEL-Nimbus® 12 running shoe is a top-selling cushioning favorite built with a broad platform for stability. Designed for neutral runners and moderate overpronaters, this running shoe features an anatomically correct upper with asymmetrical lacing for lasting comfort and a customized fit.

As the seasons change and working out moves from outside to indoors, ASICS® also offers a variety of clothing to support fitness, health and active lifestyles in any type of weather. Along with water- and wind-resistant fabric, many of the ASICS® running jackets, ASICS® running tops and ASICS® vests feature media player pockets that are designed to hold a portable music player. Athletes and fitness enthusiasts appreciate this easy-to-use pocket as they find that playing music helps to provide motivation during chilly weather workouts.

"Whether you love to run in the rain or take your workouts to a treadmill at the gym, ASICS® supports a lifestyle of health and fitness with top-notch performance shoes, running shoes, walking shoes, clothing and more." says Lora Sherod, buyer.
