Your son may want to wear the Asics Boys' Gel-Noosa Tri 9 GS Running Shoe everywhere he goes because of the colorful, glow-in-the-dark print. He'll definitely enjoy the Rearfoot Gel Cushioning System, which provides the same comfort found in Asic's high-performance footwear. The Trusstic System keeps this shoe light to keep him happily sprinting down the hallways at school, not that we would condone such behavior. Asics built the Gel-Noosa's upper out of mesh for breathability and added synthetic reinforcements and a reinforced toecap for extra durability.
In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.
