ASICS GT II Retro Sneaker
$ 79.95 $ 95.00Size Guide
The ASICS Tiger GT-II is another high style, high performance retro runner that we've designed with a myriad of color combinations and materials to keep your look going strong. This classic silhouette was born in 1986, and was the first shoe infused with ASICS’ beloved GEL-Cushioning. Aside from its renowned historical performance revolution in the running community, the timeless sneaker retains its premium upper materials and a robust, yet lightweight midsole that sit on top of a unique, traction-heavy outsole - making for a symbiotic pairing of comfort and stability.
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.
