It’s hard to argue with success. And when it comes to success, ASICS has a lot to brag about. For nearly three-quarters of a century, the shoe company has been giving runners around the world exactly what they want — comfortable, responsive running shoes that are often the first to cross the finish line.
Part of the family of ASICS athletic shoes, the GEL-Quantum collection provides style, support, and comfort for all the miles — and adventures — that lay ahead.
Built for Winning
From the moment you lace up a pair of GEL-Quantum 360 5 shoes, you’ll know you’re not wearing just any old running shoe. ASICS’ long history means that years of experience are built into this shoe, and the company’s technicians blended that heritage with cutting-edge technology. Most of the upper forefoot is a no-sew textile that hugs your foot and provides maximum flexibility and breathability. 360-degree GEL technology cushions every step with perfect absorption, which means you can run with a comfortable, confident stride that will leave other runners not wearing Asics running clothing wondering what your secret is. Pick up a pair of ASICS Pants and an ASICS Silver Singlet and you’ll be ready to lead the pack.
Second to None
Great style melds with ultimate comfort and performance in the GEL-Quantum 180 5. ASICS’ latest model in the legendary 180 line is a step ahead of the competition and will keep you running long and strong. The shoe intuitively hugs your foot because of the ORTHOLITE sockliner, and the synthetic mesh upper provides support and breathability. GEL technology in the midsole wraps the entire back half of the shoe for exceptional shock absorption, no matter what kind of surface you’re running on. With GEL-Quantum 180 5 shoes on your feet, nothing stands between you and the finish line. Pair them with ASICS 5” Shorts and an ASICS Clothing.
The ASICS Story
Kihachiro Onitsuka was a former military officer living in Kobe, Japan in 1949. He was keenly interested in boosting the morale of the country’s youth after the dark days of WWII. Founding a small shoe company with just four employees, he set out to promote athletic activity and a healthy lifestyle among Japan’s younger generation.
With a revolutionary new design for traction on the outsole — inspired by the suction cups on the tentacles of an octopus — his Tiger basketball shoe quickly reached hundreds of sports shops throughout the country.
Onitsuka named his company ASICS — an acronym for the Latin phrase “anima sana in corpore sano,” which means “healthy soul in a healthy body.” After more than 70 years, ASICS is still true to its mission. Many runners around the world wouldn’t put anything but ASICS on their feet.
