In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka started 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, in line with 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 used to be founded at the belief that one of the simplest ways to create a healthy and happy way of life is to advertise total health and fitness.ASICS products were introduced to the USA in 1977 and brought with them an implausible story of athletic performance and technical advancements, a philosophy which still holds true these days.
