Asics aka Anima Sana In Corpore Sano - a sound mind in a sound body.Founded in Japan in 1949 originally as the Onitsuka Co, the company changed its name to Asics in 1977 providing athletes with running shoes that exceeded technical and performance levels at the time. The brand can take a lot of credit for inspiring Phil Knight to create Nike as he originally imported pairs of Onitsuka's and sold them to athletes in America from the boot of his car.
We have been selling Asics since way back in 2006, a few of the regulars on the old crooked tongues forum were reminiscing about the old classic Gel Lyte III and we thought why not call customer services and see if they have any.
To our astonishment they had a few pairs of the og colourway gathering dust in some corner of their warehouse, we snapped them all up and have never looked back.
The Asics Gel Lyte III is without doubt one of the best trainers of all time.
