Asics presents the ‘GEL 1090’ — an accessible line-model from the Japanese brand that returns in a clean all-white colourway. The retro styling has been re-engineered with a modern lens, while retaining the pair’s signature design details. Inspired by the lines of a motorcycle, these shoes are meant to emphasise the notion of speed. Crafted from breathable mesh uppers and leather overlays, the shoes sit atop on comfortable and durable ‘GEL’-cushioned midsoles. More sizes are available at END. (£79) and ASOS (£80).

[ “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano” ]

Kihachiro Onitsuka 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. The Japanese company’s mission is to become the number one brand for the sports enthusiasts by learning what is best for their customers by creating athletic gear they use a variety of different materials and keep pushing the boundaries of technology and production.
