About Asics Sports Footwear

Would you believe that Asics goes back as far as 1949! When Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka founded the original company behind the ASICS brand, Onitsuka Co. Ltd in Kobe which is a town in Japan. It is  also famous for its high grade of hand reared cattle, where Kobe beef comes from. He started by making shoes for Japan’s 'rising' young basketball players. His first trainers featured a recessed sole design, which had a suction cup underneath, rather like an octopus. 1950 was a landmark year for the company when the Boston marathon was won in a pair of Onitsuka Tigers. Asics came together in 1977 when the company merged with GTO Sports, changing the company name to an acronym of the latin; Anima Sana In Corpore Sano. Which means meaning Sound Mind In A Sound Body, to promote a healthy lifestyle. Now the company sits at the heart of performance Sports. Its Mexico 66 shoe was relaunched as a retro trainer in 2000 and  won the Mexico Olympics in 1968.  Now a fashion staple with its slimline upper and eva sole, made famous in yellow form by Uma Thurman in the Quentin Tarantino film Kill Bill!
