Stay sound in mind and body with ASICS men’s and women’s shoes on eBay
In 1949, Kihachiro Onitsuka started making basketball shoes in his living room in Kobe, Japan. From those humble beginnings would grow one of the biggest, best-known brands in the footwear world. eBay has thousands of pairs of ASICS shoes as well as activewear and other apparel for men, women, boys and girls in an incredible range of styles that can have you looking great and performing your best.
What does ASICS mean or stand for?
ASICS stands for Anima Sana In Corpore Sano, a Latin saying that translates to “a sound mind in a sound body.” Company founder Onitsuka founded ASICS on the back of the idea that the key to creating a happy and healthy life is through total health and fitness. ASICS has dived headfirst into this belief, establishing the Research Institute of Sports Science in Kobe in 1990 to perform testing with the goal of making strides in performance footwear.
In the decades since its humble beginnings in a Kobe living room, ASICS has grown into one of the biggest sportswear brands in the world, with everybody from casual weekend athletes to professionals in a variety of codes around the world donning the company’s shoes in the pursuit of fitness perfection.
