Asics is one of the most understated sneaker brands in the world with one of the more interesting origin stories to boot. While its current popularity isn't on the levels of the likes of Nike or Adidas, the brand has its own dedicated following to fall back on. We discuss the origin of Asics along with hung through the Asics release dates that are imminent.
Everyone is aware of how the Onitsuka tiger influenced the founding of one the giants of the industry known as Nike. Asics was later formed in a merger of three other Japanese sports brands which included the brand that inspired Nike's formation.
In the year 1986, Asics introduced its Alpha GEL system. The new cushioning system. The Gel-Lyte, which has been the company's most famous line, was birthed from this introduction. Nowadays, Asics remains laser-focused on performance and has made its GEL cushioning system its primary focus in terms of technology in its sneakers. Their GEL-Quantum 360 and GEL-DS have gained a following in some fashion circles all without Asics not really trying to appeal to anyone other than its core demographic, which is runners. But the sneaker brand does dabble in some fashion if its collaborations with designers like Kiko Kostadinov or Kith’s Ronnie Fieg are anything to go by.
