Asics, designed for high-level athletes.
At the very beginning, Asics designed shoes for basketball players in order to respond to their needs for comfort while playing, in order for them to be more efficient. Their first creation was called Onitsuka Tiger, a pair of shoes which was characterized by special soles simulating the plunger of an octopus. The brand became famous and expanded its interest to also cover other kinds of sports. In 1951, the winner of the Boston marathon was wearing tiger shoes, and in 1964, Japanese women volleyball players also won gold medals during Tokyo Olympic Games while wearing “tigers”. Starting in 1970s, the brand changed its name to ASICS which stands for “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano” meaning a healthy body in a healthy mind. A research center destined to bring improvement and innovation to their shoe design has been founded in the 1980s.
