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.

I'm an avid wearer of Nimbus since the 12s. I loved the 12s with the cushion and asymmetric lacing, but needed some more structure. The 13s had the structure, but not as cushy. The 14s were totally flat and were unwearable. The Nimbus 15s are by far my favorite with the pillowy entry, cushion, weight and durability. So, now the Nimbus 16..they are more structured across the top of the foot, but the cushion of the 15s are gone. Also, the sole/heel has changed so, it feels as though there's a heel cup. After only 2 runs, I started getting discomfort in my heel...so, back they go and I'm on the hunt for more 15s. Asics...keep the good cushion and sole of the 15s...why change a great thing!

Not enough support or cushioning. My feet are always tired and achy after wearing these all day. Also, shoe laces are really short. Note that I wear these for running errands, etc., not actual exercise.

Started power walking about a year ago. I selected this shoe based on reviews and features. On my second pair and I find them to be and indispensable part of my fitness routine. No problems with knees, arches,or shin splints. I was 240 when I started and now I'm 175. Walking was the key and the shoes made it possible. I usually walk 3 miles per day and have no discomfort on walked Up to six miles. I did loose big toe nails after first two weeks but hard to say if it was fit or normal stress from new activity. Maybe a little tight in the toe. Walked on concrete and asphalt and wear pattern was even and durability was excellent. Sock lining did wear through on side of heel after nine months. Should have replaced first pair earlier, as I could really feel the spring in the new pair. Zappos was great. Ordered another pair of Asics that didn't work out and had my replacement shoes in hand two days later. Great customer service.

THE most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned. I feel like I am walking on springy clouds! The reflective properties on the shoe make walking at night a bit safer. I usually wear a size 11 but went up to a size 11.5 to allow for some extra room. I made the right decision and I LOVE my Asics Gel-Kayano!
