ASICS got its name from the Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano" — a sound mind in a sound body — and its shoes were made to achieve that.
The difference in ASICS running shoes begins at their Research Institute of Sports Science in Japan. At the institute, scientists break down and analyze how athletes move to tailor their running shoes and gear specifically to runners' needs. Each step in the process is meant to help runners reach their goals.
Technology and design meet in iconic ASICS running shoes like the GEL-Kayano 26. ASICS gave the newest edition of the long-running Kayano line a redesigned GEL cushioning system in the heel to absorb shock and plenty of responsive foam to let you go the distance. It's a stellar update to one of the most popular running shoes ever.
The best ASICS running shoes for women make each run better.
ASICS updated the GEL-Nimbus 21 with a new full-contact outsole that makes the heel-to-toe transition smoother and increases stability for those long training runs. Designers kept the same external heel counter that locks in your foot and GEL cushioning system that soaks up impact, making the women's GEL-Nimbus 21 perfect for half marathon and full marathon training.Shop All ASICS Women's Running Shoes
From the first mile to the last, ASICS running shoes will push you farther than you thought possible.
The popular men's ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 24 is streamlined for speed. Designed with a performance knit upper and lightweight foam midsole, there's nothing standing in the way of your PR.
ASICS gave the DS Trainer an internal heel counter to mitigate overpronation and added a reinforced truss system in the midfoot to provide extra stability. Underneath, ASICS used FlyteFoam Lyte—their lightest midsole foam—to cushion each step without adding unnecessary weight.Shop All ASICS Men's Running Shoes
