ASICS, the acronym, is derived from the Latin phrase, “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano” which translates to “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.”
Over 70 years ago, Mr Kihachiro Onitsuka was looking for a way to provide hope to children in post-war Japan. He settled on making shoes as he knew that sport had the ability to bring hope and lift spirits. His original shoe company, Onitsuka Co. Ltd., would go on to merge with two other companies in 1977, officially creating the ASICS brand that we all know today.
At ASICS we are committed to building health and happiness in both mind and body and truly value our partnerships and associations that help support us in achieving that.

There’s more to sport than just first place. It’s not just about heroes; or being the fastest or strongest. It’s about fun. Adventure and Play. At Rebel Sport we call that finding your win. For some a win’s a world record. For others it’s a club record. Just showing up and participating can be a big victory when you’re younger. Losing but being a good sport about it. That’s a win. Or how about making it to every single one of your kid’s games – now that’s gotta be a win. Keeping at it when you’re older – massive win right there. A quick win. A solid win. A hard-fought win. Life’s full of them. And a whole bunch of them start with us. So, whatever it is… Find your Win with Rebel Sport.
