ASICS® was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote sports. In fact, ASICS is an acronym from the famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which translates, "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Originating in Kobe, Japan over fifty years ago, ASICS shoes and ASICS clothing were introduced to the United States in 1977. Throughout the years and running beyond today, the ASICS philosophy imparts an incredible story of athletic performance and technical advancements.
ASICS shoes, apparel and bags are produced in a wide assortment to meet the needs of men, women and kids. ASICS has produced products filled with technological designs and features such as the revolutionary ASICS® GEL® Cushioning System. The ASICS® GEL-NIMBUS® and GEL-KAYANO running shoes benefited from such innovation and have enhanced the running experience for so many ASICS mens and ASICS womens aficionados. So on any given day, a runner can get fitted from head to toe with ASICS running clothes and running shoes. A feat Kihachiro Onitsuka would be very proud of to this day.
Running is one focus for this brand as ASICS produces products for training, volleyball, wrestling, track & field, cheerleading and field sports. ASICS kids shoes and ASICS kids clothing are made for the younger athletic market. Rounding out the brand’s product offering are ASICS bags to help meet the demands of your sporting desires.
To date, ASICS continues to put forth quality tested products designed to stand the rigors of elite and amateur athletes alike. Willing to try something new, and always staying ahead of the curve is how ASICS manages to stay true to it's namesake.

Fabulously great shoes for the money. Unfortunately, they didn't quite make it with the colors. I am running in a race and wanted it to match my red-toned (instead of orange) racing uniform. How vain is that? But, buy this shoe. Awesome.

Forget the Gel Kayano 20s. I thought that shoe would offer me great support for walking, but it didn't, and it runs a bit small and narrow. The GT-2000 is a lightweight trail shore and beats it by a mile. I love this shoe! I bought it out of desperation and the moment I put it on I could feel how awesome it is. I love the support, the way it feels, the way it looks! This shoe runs true to size. In most athletic shoes I go up a 1/2 size but I took my regular shoe size in the GT 2000. It also has nice room in the toe box, but not too much room...just right.

I bought these shoes for work. I am on concrete floor all day and needed more comfort than my old Adidas hiking shoes. These did the trick. A little break in was needed to stretch out the toe box. I don't have wide feet so I was surprised that my little toes felt a little pinched. Still a tiny bit snug but still comfortable enough to wear all day. My feet feel much better at the end of the day and my bad back doesn't suffer as much either. The style is lacking... they look like grandpa shoes and lose the new look quickly, but since I use them for work I don't care about looks so much. Overall pretty happy. I will definitely buy Asics again and of course from Zappos!

I love to order from Zappos because I get my order quickly and hassle free. If the shoes I order don't fit, I can return them for free, unlike many other sites. It is hard to fit my feet as I am a EE in width, but I can usually find a great shoe at a great price. I highly recommend Zappos!
