The history of the brand with the legendary Tigerstripes goes back to the year 1949. The Japanese Kihachiro Onitsuka's vision was to create the best sports shoes that would inspire people to take part in sports and help them achieve their personal goals in a healthy way. ASICS believes that a well-trained mind and body are the basis for self-confidence and the ability to meet the challenges of life.
The success story began in 1950 with a basketball shoe, soon followed by a marathon shoe. Since then, the once small shoe manufactory has become a global player that stands for innovative sports equipment with revolutionary technologies. In Kobe, Japan, ASICS operates the ASICS Institute of Sport Science, one of the most advanced research and development centers in the world. In 1986, the unique ASICS GEL™ cushioning was developed here, which is still used today in ASICS running shoes. The particularly durable and fatigue-free gel sole adapts ideally to the individual foot shape and offers high comfort through effective cushioning and increased stability.
The GEL-Kayano model, which has been in the ASICS line-up since 1993, is a true primeval rock. Originally designed as a running shoe for outdoor and indoor training, today the GEL-Kayano 25 is still one of the best running shoes you can buy. Of course it shares the limelight with other ASICS legends, such as the light GT-2000. Also in the program since 1993 and now flanked by a whole series, which also includes the models GT-1000, GT-3000 and GT-4000. The shoes of the GT series are true long-distance performers and convince with their low weight and comprehensive support. The models of the Noosa series were originally manufactured by ASICS for use in triathlons. They are colourful, light and extremely well ventilated and, together with the ASICS DynaFlyte, they belong to the category of fast and light competition shoes. Another classic: the ASICS GEL-Cumulus with a lot of cushioning for medium to long distances and neutral characteristics. A version with Gore-Tex membrane is also available for running in dirty weather.
The Nimbus has also been in the range since 1999 and has now been given the ultimate update with the brand new GEL-Nimbus 21. The luxurious, well cushioned neutral shoe for long-distance runners has been fitted with an improved fit that now offers more space for the forefoot. ASIC's famous GEL™ cushioning and new FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology offer maximum shock absorption and overwhelming propulsion, allowing you to run even longer. Experience long-lasting comfort from start to finish line.
